Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD): Laboratory Leadership and Management Essentials
BD and WDI, in partnership with the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL), created an 8-part online course for 34 participants from laboratories across Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda based on the curriculum of the in-person APHL Foundations of Laboratory Leadership and Management. The course provides management and leadership skills to laboratory staff via videos, assignments, tests, and office hours. It leverages the ExtendEd portal, a learning management system custom developed by WDI for our education programs. The course represents the first collaboration between WDI’s Education, Healthcare, and Performance Measurement and Improvement sectors.
