Hospital and Health Management Associate Role
The two overarching goals of this role are to: (1) strengthen management systems and staff capacity at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFKMC) with a focus on the Center’s Infectious Disease Clinic, and (2) serve as an instructor for and assist with the implementation of an executive-education style course in health systems leadership and management at the University of Liberia, a certificate-level training program for existing Liberian health managers. The Associate’s efforts to build management capacity will be grounded in a partnership-mentorship model in which the Associate works alongside their counterparts at JFKMC and mentor learners in the certificate course.

The Associate will also spend time intermittently at the University of Liberia in Monrovia to collaborate with faculty in the delivery of a certificate-level health management course. The course includes topics such as strategic problem solving, change management and organizational leadership, hospital operations and quality improvement, human resource management, and financial management.
