MSH - Management Training: Scheduled Courses
--------------------------------------------

Scheduled Management Courses are designed to enhance the practical
knowledge and skills of one or several key staff in Strategic Leader-
ship, Health Financing, Information Systems, or Drug Management.
Through active learning, group work, and simulation exercises, Man-
agement Science for Health (MSH) facilitators provide participants
with an international professional development experience that they
can share and apply within their organizations. Participants are ex-
perienced health care managers and decision-makers from diverse pro-
fessional and cultural backgrounds. Their lively exchange of ideas
creates an exciting and productive learning environment. During the
course, participants apply their learning to actual situations
through field trips and, in most cases, develop action plans to im-
plement upon return.
