RACMA Practical Leadership Series

The Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (RACMA) ofers 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.

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.

RACMA launched the new professional development program at the University of Tasmania in Hobart on 4 July 2014. Delegates were welcomed by RACMA president Dr Lee Gruner and RACMA Chief Executive Dr Karen Owen, with the keynote address delivered by Prof Chris Baggoley AO - Chief Medical Officer Australian Government. Prof Baggoley discussed the importance of working towards a sustainable health system for Tasmania, with local context also provided by Mr Graeme Houghton, Chair Tasmanian Health Organisations Council and Dr Lee Gruner. Delegates were given the opportunity to review the planned program and influence content by providing feedback about workshops, webinars and master classes.
