Nathan Stolch

The Canadian health-care system is undergoing significant transformation, and it requires leaders who are knowledgeable and experienced in these areas to ensure that change is successful.

As a clinician, the EMHA program allowed me to solidify my leadership and management skills, which are often lacking in clinical training programs. The EMHA program has also given me the skills, knowledge and confidence to move into senior leadership positions in health care.
