The Master of Health Leadership and Policy (MHLP) in Seniors Care is designed to enable participants to lead, design and deliver comprehensive care and services for seniors in a range of community and institutional settings.

The proportion of seniors is accelerating rapidly. While many services are provided in the public sector there is an increasing number and range of services for seniors in the private and non-profit sectors as well. This demographic trends highlight the pressing need for health professionals who can create the future of seniors care in community and institutional contexts.

As a health care specialist in seniors care, you are responsible to improve patient outcomes and foster the well-being of seniors. You have to lead, design and deliver comprehensive care and services for seniors. With a dual focus on strengthening your skills in the technical aspects of seniors care and deepening your capacity as a leader, this program will help you to develop innovative solutions, manage collaborative teams and lead projects.

The MHLP is a 12-month degree starting in January. While 70 per cent of your Seniors Care courses will focus on your technical specialization, the remaining 30 per cent are leadership development courses that will enhance your business, communication and people skills. Delivery of the management and leadership courses are in partnership with UBC's Sauder School of Business. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about the MHLP in Seniors Care.
