Physician Leadership Courses

Interested in Physician Leadership? The CMA’s Physician Leadership Institute will be hosting two courses in Vancouver in June.

Engaging Others – June 12 – 14

When leading and managing others in health care organizations, one must frequently work across functions, distance and cultures. This course focuses on the core practical skills that leaders need to succeed in this environment. It introduces several pragmatic tools for engagement and influence, which are particularly useful when you need to gain the commitment and cooperation of people outside your sphere of organizational authority. The course will address what it means to be engaged — and to engage others — by tapping into people’s potential.


Physician as Coach – June 15 – 16

Coaching is increasingly being adopted as part of a support and development strategy in our health care system. When physicians assume formal leadership roles, they are in the position of managing and enabling the performance of others. Coaching is one of the strategies they can use to unlock people’s potential to maximize performance.

This course helps physicians discover ways to practically apply coaching skills in a variety of contexts. These skills can be used to support and optimize the performance of those around them — colleagues, patients, administrators or other stakeholders. You will learn to build a coaching culture that maximizes strengths and supports greater capacity to find creative solutions to challenging situations.
