Course convenor: Professor Lucy Gilson
The overall programme goals are to support South African health managers, particularly those within the public sector, to develop the practices and behaviours of strategic and effective leaders in order to strengthen the South African health system.
The postgraduate Diploma is also part of a broader health management programme, known as the ‘Oliver Tambo Fellowship Programme’. This name was chosen, after consultation with the Tambo family, in recognition of Oliver Tambo’s strong and inspiring leadership.
The Programme entails a full partnership between the School of Public Health and Family Medicine and the UCT Graduate School of Business (GSB).
The programme comprises:
- a postgraduate Diploma in Health Management;
- a mentorship programme to support Diploma candidates in developing their leadership skills;
- an alumni network to enable sustained engagement and learning among fellows;
- engagement with other senior health managers through regular seminars and events.
See the School of Public Health website for full details.
