The Virtual Campus promotes the strengthening of leadership for educational management in the Americas, through an action-research strategy

Washington DC, April 26, 2024 (PAHO)- The development of virtual educational proposals in health institutions requires trained teaching teams with the capacity to analyze the environment and the challenges of the transformation of the world of work in health and education.

As part of the commitments of the Virtual Campus for Public Health (VCPH) to strengthen the teaching capacities in health institutions in the Region of the Americas, this Special Program of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) has collaborated with academic institutions in the design of a course focused on "Leadership for Educational Management in Health Organizations".

The course has already been approved for development by the governance committee of the Virtual Campus and work has been carried out to define its contents.

A team of members from the Virtual Campus and the Italian Hospital University Institute of Buenos Aires (IUHIBA) conducted a qualitative action research study, using a Delphi methodology, consisting of two iterations of consultations, one virtual and one face-to-face, with experts in educational management in health organizations.
