Physician Leadership Program – UBC Sauder School of Business

As leaders in health care rise in formal responsibility, relationship-building, communication, and interpersonal skills are key indicators of success. This imperative requires a shift from the traditional, autonomous culture to a mindset of teamwork, shared decision making, collaborative communication, and inspirational leadership.

The objective of this innovative program is to deliver the leadership knowledge, behaviours, and skills that senior physicians need to effectively engage in the planning, delivery, and transformation of our health care system. Participants will acquire meaningful new perspectives on health care leadership, and develop a practical, broad-based set of skills to work up and down multiple levels of organizations and across multiple health care contexts.

This program was created by collaboration between B.C. Health Authorities, B.C. Patient Safety Quality Council, UBC’s Sauder School of Business and the UBC Faculty of Medicine. Its interdisciplinary outlook ensures a system-wide, yet well-integrated, view of both the medical and management aspects required for excellence in health care leadership.
