ūüďÖ 29 November - 3 December 2021

This five-day program is a fantastic opportunity to develop your leadership toolkit and enable you to progress from great clinician to great leader.

Leading and managing are intrinsic parts of being a doctor. Often without formal recognition, doctors manage teams, lead service improvements, provide staff development opportunities and contribute to the day-to-day management of their departments.

From very early in their careers doctors have a significant impact on the quality and safety of patient care, on patient experience, staff morale, and on the effectiveness of the working environment.

Expand your skills and confidence in leadership, quality improvement, managing change, creating positive culture, financial management, driving clinical performance, managing projects, influencing organisational stakeholders and establishing robust training and research programs.
