Krembil Public Healthcare Internship Program

An integral part of this Centre is the Krembil Public Healthcare Internship Program that allows Health Industry Management Program (HIMP) graduates from the MBA program and Master of Health Industry Administration students to spend 10 weeks to 16 weeks during May to September with a healthcare employer – learning, experiencing, and contributing to the healthcare industry under the mentorship of senior healthcare leaders.

The learning-on-the-job experience offers hands-on training that complements academic studies at Schulich and enhances a student’s career path. Three successful applicants will be recognized with a “Krembil Public Healthcare Internship Award” of $15,000 each.

Krembil Scholars Program

The Scholars Program will continue to support the Robert Krembil Scholarship of Merit, which has been expanded to include new scholarships for Master of Management students. In addition, the Program will add a new stream of the Robert Krembil Scholarships of Merit for students enrolled in the new Master of Health Industry Administration (MHIA) program, targeted for launch in September 2023, as well as for MBA students specializing in Health Industry Management.


    The development of a world-class education, research and sector outreach hub has been an inspiration for many years and we are grateful to the Krembil family for enabling such a seminal and consequential initiative for our students, faculty and the healthcare community.

    Healthcare has been undergoing rapid change and innovation and the pandemic has underscored significant challenges and opportunities, particularly the indispensable role of leadership and management.

    The Krembil Centre for Health Management and Leadership has been created to cultivate high performance leaders who bring integrity, innovation and a strong change agenda to the health sector. Our inaugural summit starts this journey. There are many other plans in place including a new 12-month Master of Health Industry Administration (MHIA).

    We embrace this mission and look forward to helping shape this dynamic sector with the next generation of healthcare leaders.

“In these difficult and challenging times, it has never been more important to develop the kind of leaders in the healthcare sector who can anticipate change and provide responsible, innovative solutions. It is for that reason that I am particularly proud of this initiative with the Schulich School of Business.”
