Purpose of the article is to determine the training needs of healthcare managers in Ukraine in the specialty "Public administration and management". As the main method, we used a written survey (questionnaire survey) of experts in the field of healthcare, using modern computer technologies. Participation of experts in this study is entirely voluntary. Confidentiality of information is guaranteed by anonymity of the questionnaire. Expert poll of healthcare leaders was conducted in March-April 2020 in order to determine training needs of the specialty "Public administration and management." A total of 54 respondents took part in the expert poll. Majority (96.3%) of respondents need to undergo training in the specialty "Public administration and management" (specialization "Management in the field of healthcare"). The overwhelming majority of them would like to undergo training on the topics: "personnel management in healthcare organizations (leadership, communication management, time management, stress management, self-management, psychological foundations of management in healthcare, etc.)" (64.8%) and "healthcare management "(59.3%). Summarizing results of the study, it has been proved that in order to improve the professional competencies of leaders in the health sector, it is desirable to introduce the training program "Leadership and Management in Health Care", which is aimed at solving problematic issues of management in the field of health protection; application of strategic management in the field of health care, quality management of medical care; obtaining communication skills and building an effective team; effective application of the knowledge gained in the environment is changing rapidly, etc. We believe that improving the mechanisms of training, retraining and raising their qualifications should be an important issue in the development of human resources in health care, especially managers. In particular, this applies to innovative forms of education, including trainings, online training, etc.
