Until 1987, Dr. Glouberman was at a McGill University teaching hospital where he experienced first-hand the struggles among various forces in health care. In 1987 he went to the King's Fund in London, England where he designed and led innovative programs in leadership development. He returned to Canada in 1992 and continues to work in both countries.
In Canada he has facilitated numerous open space conferences for between 60 and 600 participants. He has designed and led leadership development programs in public and private sector organizations. In the UK he provides consultation to major teaching hospitals and a cross section of the National Health Service. Dr. Glouberman has spoken widely in Europe, North America and Australia. His recent publications are in the areas of complex systems, health in cities, and health care reform. He is currently hard at work on the history of the concepts of health and illness.
Sholom's recent projects include: Development of the International Masters Program for Health Leadership at McGill University, the establishment of the Clinamen Collaboration, a mixed group of writers on health and complexity, work on Reconnecting to Care a project at Baycrest to bring care of patients back to basics.
