Women account for approximately 46% of the work force in China. Recognizing this powerful presence, GHLI partnered with Goldman Sachs to help women in the health care industry capitalize on their management and leadership skills.
The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women: Yale-Tsinghua Certificate Program in International Healthcare Management is part of a five-year investment to provide underserved women around the world with a business and management education. GHLI partnered with Tsinghua School of Economics and Management to train female health care administrators in China by offering practical field experience and classroom work to women across the health delivery system, with a focus on those serving rural and underserved urban communities.
The program involves 419 scholars from 311 institutes of 25 provinces in China, with a goal of training 500 administrators by 2013. The program was the first in China between two internationally renowned universities to target female health care administrators from secondary and county level hospitals, community health centers and local health bureaus throughout the country.
GHLI continues to explore academic and government partnerships in China in an effort to anticipate and address new health care delivery challenges.
“I feel a greater sense of confidence now which enables me to do more for my career and my life,” 10,000 Women: Tsinghua Certificate Program in International Healthcare Management scholar.
