Program Description

The one-year program includes a series of live, synchronous workshops that brings together students from a range of healthcare professions to build leader identity and master leadership skills including leading teams, communication, and career development. An interactive and participative approach will probe student experiences, build new perspective, and focus on each student’s individual development as a leader. The purpose is to build leadership that centers on self-awareness and fosters authenticity that allows each student to act in alignment with their core values as a leader, encourage and assess information from different perspectives, and balance transparency.

With the individual core as a foundation for leadership development, this course prepares students for the leadership journey, allowing the individual to establish a strong sense of purpose and understanding of who they want to be as a leader. The format for the program builds on three explicit design elements: Theory and Knowledge; Clinical Application, and Reflection and Dialogue.

The purpose of the design is to ensure the connection between theory and practice and allow for peer-learning and feedback to further ensure participants apply learning beyond the classroom. Classroom sessions are combined with virtual meetings to keep building knowledge as well as sustain the group as a cohort and are outlined over six modules. Four modules will be 1/2  days (on Saturdays)* and four modules will be evening sessions, 1.5 hrs.
