HLA Amsterdam






First international cohort

The Healthcare Leadership Academy (HLA) is a unique institute set up to support early stage healthcare professionals from all backgrounds to explore and expand their leadership potential. The HLA aims to create an environment to challenge our scholars in a personal way. Three former HLA London scholars have expanded the innovative programme beyond the UK to Amsterdam. They aim to make the programme developed in London and Newcastle accessible to healthcare professionals across Europe.

In september 2019, the very first international cohort has kicked off in Amsterdam! The HLA community has become a platform for international exchange of ideas and collaboration.

Inclusivity

The Healthcare Leadership Academy values accessibility and equity and believes all healthcare professionals should have the means to learn about and engage in leadership activities; at any level and at any time. The Healthcare Leadership Academy believes inclusivity is key to leadership. Leadership should not be the arena of a chosen few but of all those with innovative visions, ideas and solutions.

Cohort 2020-2021

During the course of a year, the HLA will challenge scholars to develop a project within their field of interest. The scholars will attend sessions in Amsterdam with themes covering entrepreneurship, situational leadership, negotiation skills, advanced media communications training and more. The sessions will be delivered by the original London faculty, as well as by international faculty members. Various mechanisms such as peer feedback, facilitated reflection and mentoring are employed to encourage scholars in their personal and project development. Throughout the year events will be organised where the scholars will meet the other cohorts, alumni and faculty members. Perhaps the most exciting part of joining the HLA Amsterdam is not only that you gain the skills and knowledge from the course, but that you are also joining a vibrant and thriving community of the healthcare leaders of tomorrow.

“The famous Greek physician Hippocrates (460-370 BC) stated centuries ago: ‘It is far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has.’ A primary task of leadership is to stay focused on the set goal.”

“The biggest challenge is to get every stakeholder in healthcare on board, to let them lose their primary focus on their own interest and to make them commit to the bigger picture: to improve healthcare for each patient. This requires collaboration and constant willingness and ability to change”
