Young executive leaders who have proven outstanding merit in healthcare management can have the chance to exchange with peers on capital healthcare issues, as well as to interact with talented thought leaders from all around the world. Through IHF Young Executive Leaders program, participants will build sustainable relationships and expand their network internationally. As a group, they will discuss current trends, challenges and opportunities for the young healthcare leaders of today, creating an environment for vibrant and exciting dialogue.
Throughout 2021, the selected Young Executive Leaders (YELs) will share experience and work together on topics related to the 2021 World Hospital Congress (WHC). The selected topics are a vehicle rather than an objective per se. Through this program, IHF seeks to connect young leaders across the world, broadcast the younger generation’s perspectives on global challenges, and build sustainable relationships. The program ends in November at the WHC, to be held 8-11 November 2021 in Barcelona, after which they will join the growing YEL Alumni.
Due to the crisis that we faced worldwide in 2020, the YELs mainly focused on 2 topics:
Between August and November, they groups published insightful articles on the IHF Blog to share their outcomes with the healthcare community.
