Physician Leadership Education Programs

Whether it’s patients, staff or colleagues, physicians 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.

LEADERSHIP COURSES

New this year, MSPEI is offering 15 seats to PEI physicians to participate in select individual leadership courses that are offered as part of MSPEI-Schulich School of Business Master’s Certificate in Physician Leadership.

Physicians have said they want more say in how the health-care system is run. We also know that as physicians become more engaged in improving the system in which they work, they are more professionally satisfied and are less likely to experience burnout. These courses provide physicians with a new set of skills to enable them to lead change within their practices and more broadly.
