The Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators has developed the Medical Leadership and Management Curriculum to govern the direction and scope of the College’s education and training programs.
The RACMA Medical Leadership and Management Curriculum informs the process by which a medical practitioner in Australasia attains the accredited specialty qualification in medical administration and maintains and furthers their knowledge and skills by continuing professional development in the specialty. The curriculum aims to produce medical practitioners who use both their clinical training and experience and their specialist medical management expertise to lead and influence health service delivery.
The Medical Leadership and Management Curriculum focuses on the specific competencies needed for medical management and leadership practice. These competencies are organised around the seven CanMEDS roles. The central role is that of Medical Leader based on the foundation of medical expertise and supported by competencies embedded in the CanMEDS roles of Communicator, Collaborator, Health Advocate, Manager, Scholar and Professional.
