Schulich Launches Krembil Centre and Hosts Healthcare Leadership Summit
On September 23, Schulich’s newly established Krembil Centre for Health Management and Leadership will host a Leadership Summit exploring the future of healthcare in a post-pandemic world. Schulich graduate Robert Krembil (MBA ’71, Hon LLD ’00) and the Krembil Foundation, together with Schulich Interim Dean Detlev Zwick and Centre Director Joseph Mapa, will take part in the Summit and the official launch of the Krembil Centre. President and Vice-Chancellor Rhonda L. Lenton, and Dean Emeritus Dezsö J. Horváth will also provide introductory remarks at the start of the event.
Made possible by a $5-million donation from the Krembil Foundation and Robert Krembil, the Krembil Centre for Health Management and Leadership will become a leading global hub of health industry outreach, education and research at Schulich.
A key feature of the Centre’s work will be the development of a new, one-year professional degree, the Master of Health Industry Administration. Other core elements of the Centre are the establishment of the Krembil Chair for Health Management and Leadership, the Krembil Public Healthcare Internship Program, which allows students to gain real-world experience working under the mentorship of senior healthcare leaders, and new student scholarships.
“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,” shared Joseph Mapa, Director of the Krembil Centre. “We are grateful to the Krembil family for enabling such a seminal and consequential initiative for our students, faculty and the healthcare community.”
