For more than twenty years iFHP’s Executive Development Programme (EDP) has set the global benchmark for executive learning in the health insurance industry.
Hundreds of executives have participated in the programme over the past two decades, and many of today’s health plan CEOs can be counted among the programme’s alumni.

EDP is an experiential programme offering direct and unparalleled access to leading health plans and expert industry speakers. Delegates are able to see and hear first-hand how health markets function around the world and how the private health insurance industry works within markets to achieve outstanding health outcomes for their members.

EDP delegates participate in a global study tour, organised in three separate parts. Travelling as a group, participants benefit from learning from each other while building a valuable personal network that can endure for years to come.

What is it?

EDP is an intensive study programme designed specifically for senior health plan leaders to broaden their understanding of the world’s health systems and payer strategies. The programme provides a unique opportunity to forge relationships with colleagues and experts from all over the world.
Duration: 2 x 2 weeks (4 weeks total) plus virtual presentations

Who should attend?

• CEOs
• New Board members
• Senior health plan executives/C-suite
• Senior managers recognised as fast-track/high potential
