MMI and HDI Reach Agreement!

Medical Ministry International and HDI have agreed to develop a training program for healthcare managers serving poor people around the globe. The organizations are planning an introductory four-day course in December, 2011 for MMI managers from 17 hospitals around the globe. The course will offer a sample of HDI's core curriculum, examining how to achieve exemplary leadership, management, sustainability and service while delivering healthcare services to poor communities around the globe.

The organizations have also agreed to develop a more extensive management training program, building on each of HDI's core disciplines with one-week courses, tentatively scheduled as one per quarter in 2012. The courses will be hosted by MMI's flagship facility, Elias Santana Hospital, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, but will be open to managers from a wide range of medical missions organizations. The HDI training curriculum will be based on the book, Four Essential Disciplines, A Training Guide for Healthcare Leaders Worldwide. The extended courses will also offer continuing education units (CEUs) from Purdue University, enabling participants to apply their educational experience as credits for graduate programs in other universities.

The agreement also opens the door for cross-cultural mentoring relationships between experienced healthcare leaders and consultants, allowing for guidance and strategic planning services tailored to the needs of those on the front lines of management with medical missions hospitals and clinics. HDI has a growing list of qualified mentors looking for ways to walk beside those who serve the poor.
