Through this program, emerging leaders get the chance to have the voice of their hospitals, region or country represented during impactful international conversations and shared with the broader healthcare community. Through the Young Executive Leaders (YEL) program, participants will build sustainable relationships and expand their professional network. 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.
From 2021, the IHF is partnering with WittKieffer, a leading global executive search and leadership advisory firm. Together, we will advance the YEL program and offer the selected Young Executive Leaders (YELs) a unique experience, which will advance their professional development, widen their networks, and bring learnings from different settings and disciplines.

From April to November, in addition to creating sustainable relationships with peers worldwide, the YELs will discuss current trends and challenges in healthcare through the program’s learning sessions and masterclasses. The capstone experience for the program cohort is attending the IHF World Hospital Congress, to be held this year from November 8-11 in Barcelona, before graduating into the YEL Alumni.
