Physician Leadership Program

Physician Leadership Development 
Whether it’s your patients, staff or colleagues, you are often asked to advocate, lead and influence change at the bedside through to the boardroom. Having the skills and support to be an effective informal or formal leader can also increase your overall professional satisfaction. Proficient physician leaders lead strong and productive quality medical practices, work skillfully alongside allied health-care professionals and influence broad system change. The Master Agreement provides $300,000 annually (in 2018 and 2019) to support physicians’ leadership development.
 
Master’s Certificate in Physician Leadership
MSPEI’s core leadership development offering for 2018 is a Master’s
Certificate in Physician Leadership. The program will be offered in partnership with York University’s Schulich School of Business. The comprehensive ten-month program will include face-to-face sessions, executive coaching and the opportunity to complete an action learning project.
 
The program is designed for physicians who currently occupy formal leadership roles, or aspire to, AND for those with an appetite for initiating change and collaborating with others to improve their workplace and healthcare system.
 
In exchange for participants’ investment of time and energy, the program will be offered at no cost. Following consultation with MSPEI members on their leadership development needs, a series of learning opportunities will be developed for 2019, funded by the Physician Leadership Development fund.
