The Healthcare Leadership Academy

The Healthcare Leadership Academy is an initiative to strengthen leadership in healthcare and medical research

Attracting and developing more skilled managers will be necessary to handle the challenges facing the health care system over the coming years. Few other parts of society present such a complex and challenging environment from a management perspective – efficiencies and economic results are increasingly at the forefront and must be balanced with mediclal requirements and ethical priorities.

  • Our vision is the Healthcare sector in ten years shall be one of the areas of society perceived to have the best leaders.
  • We promote a climate where leaders have clear mandates, are evaluated and rewarded for success.
  • We want to increase the over all attractiveness of taking up leadership roles in healthcare.

The Healthcare Leadership Academy started up in June 2011, since 2016 we are a foundation regulated by the County Administrative Board of Stockholm. The goal of the foundation is to, on a non-profit basis, promote interest, provide the tools and influence conditions for better leadership in Swedish health care.

Our work takes several different forms:

  • We run our Leadership- and Mentoring programme each year enrolling 20-25 leaders under the age of 49.
  • We award the “Future Leader” prize every year.
  • We arrange the Healthcare Leadership Day annually bringing together senior leadetship in Swedish healthcare.

The foundation was originally established by three principals, Michaël Berglund AB, Boston Consulting Group and Dagens Medicin. During 2019 Boston Consulting Group and Dagens Medicin stepped back from their involvement in the foundation and Michaël Berglund AB is now the sole principal of the foundation.
