Healthcare Planning is one of the many essential responsibilities that our personal and affiliate members actively lead or engage within their roles as healthcare professionals. The current need for all healthcare organisations to identify future healthcare requirements at a strategic level both nationally and locally as part of future capital investment plans has never been more important.
I am proud to launch IHEEM’s first interactive CPD certified online training course. This internationally acclaimed programme firmly establishes the Institute’s commitment to support the development of healthcare professionals to better understand the complex journey of Healthcare Planning.Pete Sellars, IHEEM CEO
IHEEM has partnered with TAHPI as one of our knowledge partners to deliver this certified CPD course which is aimed to introduce the specialised aspects of health facility planning and design to candidates with an interest in developing their skills to take on infrastructure projects in public and private healthcare sectors.
The Health Facility Planning Course will introduce the specialised aspects of Health Facility Planning. This course is intended for professionals who are already experienced in related industries but lack the specialised knowledge required for healthcare planning design.
Healthcare Facilities Planning will provide an overview instruction to use evidence-based research to improve a healthcare environment, master how to handle change leadership, stakeholder management, and strategic alignment with organisational goals when planning and designing your healthcare facilities.
The presentations are designed to offer relevant and up to date information to assist all those involved in working of Health Facilities or Health Services in remaining competitive, knowledgeable and an expert in the field.
The medical basis for the concept categories is introduced along with design and construction strategies to create healthy buildings.
The time has come to elevate human health and comfort to the forefront of building practices and reinvent buildings that are not only better for the planet—but also for people.

This course is particularly suited to General Practice Architects and Engineers who wish to be become experienced in the design of Healthcare Facilities. It will also benefit Consultants who have been designing hospitals but without any formal training or correct orientation (effectively learning on the job). The course will also benefit Equipment Planners who frequently engage in the design of healthcare facilities only to accommodate the equipment. They do so without the thorough knowledge of other aspects of Health Facility Planning. This course will provide the strong foundations required to do this task properly. Similarly, this course will benefit Hospital Facilities Managers who carry out their own in-house refurbishments, upgrades and minor extensions.

Live Online Classes
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, Health Facility Planning course will be delivered online via the Zoom platform from the TAHIP UAE Head Office.
Unlike other online training, where the sessions are pre-recorded at the convenience of the mentor and used/played at the convenience of the students, this Health Facility Planning Course via Zoom is tied to a fixed schedule with LIVE classes enabling maximum face to face interaction with the tutor.
There are limited spaces on this course in order to provide individual attention. Direct interaction with the tutor is a pre-requisite for this Health Facility Planning Course, considering, the depth of knowledge and information passed on during the sessions over 10 working days.
