RACMA Practical Leadership Series Print E-mail
Keeping up to date with medical leadership is a constant challenge. The Australian Government’s Department of Health recognise this challenge and have provided funding to support the development of medical professionals. The Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (RACMA) has responded by introducing a series of leadership workshops to support individuals in medical settings. The workshops incorporate best practice and take on board the expertise of leaders in the medical and medical education fields; consequently workshops will be delivered by a variety of national and international speakers, expert medical educators and RACMA Fellows.

The Practical Leadership Series is aimed at those training/ leading in the medical profession. The workshops, master classes, webinars and podcasts are designed to give busy individuals a short session of practical activities, information and tools that can quickly be incorporated into current working practice. Sessions are aimed at enabling individuals to enhance their performance and build working confidence and competence in a safe and confidential setting. The themes included are aimed at supporting the development of skills in the most challenging areas of medical work. Whether looking to refresh skills, improve the capabilities of staff or attain skills to support a new job role, RACMA’s Practical Leadership Series has something for every practitioner.
