Designed for the Global Health Innovator

SEP GHIM – the Senior Executive Programme in Global Health Innovation Management provides a unique opportunity for the Global Health Innovator to gain in knowledge, insights and skills to make a real difference in Global Health. Through an innovative experiential learning model, participants will experience hands-on innovation in three different global settings while interacting with peers and working on their personal executive challenge.

The learning journey will lead to personal and professional growth and a heightened ability to innovate in a complex and fast changing environment for better health outcomes in an equitable and sustainable way. Indeed, we need to respond to the increasing Global Health needs, while realising the potential of the opportunities given by digital, precision health and big data, providing solutions to more connected and better-informed users.

A Programme with a Truly Global Scope

The modular Programme delivered on three different continents San José (Costa Rica), Nairobi (Kenya) and Barcelona (Spain) is a learning journey starting with the broader Global Health context, its challenges and opportunities, innovation potential to improve health care performance, ideas on transformation and development of new services, and implementation and leading change. The interactive learning model will include visits to local innovation clusters, an individual innovation project, and coaching and mentoring. Next SEPGHIM edition will start by Spring 2025.
