Reflections on the Master of Leadership in Health Systems Science program

Marian Wagieh Khalil“Unlike the majority of guaranteed tracks to medical schools that are science-based, this program focuses more on teaching students about the different health systems, their components, how they are managed, and how they may affect the care provided to the patient. Thus, this program plays a huge role in building competent physicians who are not only aware of the clinical aspect of care but also how the system is run.”
