Each year the Committee decide on a theme of which to base their events or aims on.
This year, the 2016-17 Committee decided upon:
''to make NIHLF more multidisciplinary"
This theme symbolises the new partnership between health and social care students studying at Queen's University Belfast and the University of Ulster. The two student bodies have an opportunity together through the Northern Ireland Healthcare Leadership Forum, to listen and be inspired, to learn and be informed about how effective leadership can have a positive impact on their future careers.
