Program Details – 2023

The RACMA 2023 Leadership for Clinicians program will be delivered both as a blended delivery and fully online program. The blended delivery model will commence and finish with face to face delivery days. In between the scheduled face-to-face sessions there will be four interactive online sessions.

The fully online program will have all eight topics scheduled as interactive online delivery sessions.

The aims of the program are to empower clinician leaders with the knowledge, skills, confidence and self-awareness to play a central role in decision making within the healthcare and community services they are part of. The program will explore six key study themes:

1.            Understanding our healthcare system

2.            Clinical governance and medicolegal awareness

3.            Medical workforce management and engagement

4.            Leading strategy and change

5.            Financial governance

6.            Professionalism, leadership and culture

The six key study themes will be addressed through eight topics delivered both face to face and online in 2023. Each topic will incorporate pre-session work made available on the Learning Management System and an interactive session (either face to face or online). Assessment tasks related to the eight topics will be scheduled throughout the program.
