Health System Simulation

As the pace of change in healthcare continues to accelerate, executives must be leaders, adept at navigating these changes and responding to crises. The Mailman School of Public Health, Department of Health Policy and Management’s Thomas P. Ference Health System Simulation provides an opportunity to experience the challenges of executive leadership and strategic decision making in a competitive, multi-hospital marketplace. This realistic exercise effectively simulates the complexity and intensity of the evolving healthcare environment. Participants include Columbia Mailman graduate students, and healthcare leaders from 44 states, 3 military bases and 17 countries.
