Executive in Residence and Healthcare Guru Joe Mapa
Mastering complex healthcare management
There is a reason why many popular television dramas are set in hospitals. Hospitals can be chaotic places, making strategic management complex as qualified people, complicated multi-disciplinary situations, changing technologies and various methods of healthcare delivery come together.
Schulich graduate students are lucky to learn from Joseph Mapa, President and CEO of Mount Sinai Hospital. Mapa is a Schulich Executive-in-Residence and a Sessional Lecturer. He is teaching the course Strategic Management of Hospitals this fall as part of the Health Industry Management Program (HIMP) MBA specialization. The course examines strategic management in hospital enterprises, large and small, from the perspective of a health administrator.
Mapa is a wealth of information for students as he can share his experiences – he has held the President and CEO position at Mount Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto for the last 14 years. Mount Sinai Hospital, part of Sinai Health System, is as an internationally recognized 442-bed acute care academic health sciences centre affiliated with the University of Toronto that is dedicated to delivering the best medicine and best patient experience.
Mapa is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto. He currently serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Hospital Association, a Governor of the University of Toronto and is the incoming President of the Council of Academic Hospitals of Ontario. He has authored numerous articles and co-authored four books on health care management.
