iven the urgent need to enhance the managerial and leadership capacity of the health sec-
tor, UTT is developing Certi cate courses in Healthcare Management and Leadership along
with a tailored programme of study in Hospital Facilities Management. These creden-
tials will seek to furnish healthcare professionals in Trinidad and Tobago, with the requi-
site knowledge and skills for e ective management and leadership of healthcare institutions.
This is consistent with the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago's mandate to strategically
position the nation as a rst world country and the University's e orts to in uence the strengthening, reform
and transformation of the national health system through capacity-building of its human resources.
INFLUENCING HEALTH SECTOR REFORM:
Health-Care Management and Plant Maintenance
The target market for the health-care management programme will therefore be healthcare professionals
seeking to enhance their management and leadership skills, clinicians, allied health professionals and man-
agers aiming for supervisory or higher-level administrative posts in the health sector, non-health profession-
als and other workers and university graduates who are seeking to transition into the health sector.
The programme of study that will focus on plant management and maintenance will a ord students the
opportunity to deepen their knowledge and skill sets of needs analysis, project nancing, property and
project management including the development of project charters, project planning and implementation,
project monitoring and control, and total quality plant maintenance. The programme will also focus on total
health care quality management for building management.
