Senior Leadership Fellows generally teach a half-semester course at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Each course is unique and reflects the individual fellow’s career and leadership.

These courses will focus on various leadership challenges in areas such as, politics and public health, health equity, policy implementation, poverty and access to healthcare, and universal health coverage.

Leadership will function as the common thread highlighted in each course.
