Rice University, MD Anderson launch healthcare leadership program

Rice University and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center launched a new healthcare leadership program, according to a Sept. 22 news release.

The Executive Leadership in Healthcare program at Rice University's Jones Graduate School of Business provides an opportunity for current emerging healthcare leaders across the country to gain evidence-based leadership experience, according to the release. 

"We believe MD Anderson's senior leadership and Rice Business' faculty provide complementary expertise and perspectives on both the practice and theory of leading healthcare institutions that will benefit participants," said Courtney Holladay, the associate vice president of the Leadership Institute at MD Anderson.

Brent Smith, PhD, senior associate dean of executive education at Rice University School of Business, said supporting current and future healthcare leaders is a fascinating journey. 

"We have learned so much about the challenges of leading institutions in such a dynamic and challenging industry and developed deep healthcare expertise. Our collaboration with MD Anderson allows our two institutions to blend our disciplinary expertise in healthcare strategy, leadership, operations and finance," said Dr. Smith.
