Young Executive Leaders

The IHF YEL Initiative

Young executive leaders who have proven outstanding merit in healthcare management can enjoy a chance of a lifetime to exchange with peers on capital healthcare issues as well as to interact with talented thought leaders from all around the world. This is a tremendous personal and professional growth opportunity. Each individual will build sustainable relationships and expand its network internationally. Together, they will discuss current trends, challenges and opportunities for the young healthcare leaders of today, creating an environment for vibrant and exciting dialogue.
