Prof. Jacob Plange-Rhule

Great idea. Lets see how to make it work

A couple of years ago I decided to voluntarily give a significant amount at time to support the residency training programs of the Public Health Faculty of the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons.  As a result I got to work with and know Prof Jacob Plange Rhule who was the Rector of the College. I was impressed by his openness and willingness to hear ideas and suggestions and advice on what was possible or not to build the College and its programs.  His open door policy – “if I am around just check if i am free and walk in if you have something to discuss” was refreshing.  Great leaders need to know how to support and encouage innovation at all levels of an organization.  From my experience in that regard, he was a great leader.  He is and will continue to be sorely missed
