The decision to run the 2021 Leadership for Clinicians program online was made by the RACMA Board due to the impact of COVID-19. As jurisdictions respond to the evolving COVID-19 situation, online delivery of the program in 2021 facilitates access across all regions.
The program will run for a period of sixteen weeks, participants will meet fortnightly for a four to six hour session. Alternate weeks will require four to six hours of self-directed learning. There are a total of eight sessions and an additional introduction session.

Cohorts 5 – 6 are scheduled between 5th August and 27th November 2021
Please refer to the 2021 Timetables for all sessions.

We acknowledge that some components of the previously delivered Days 1-3 of Module 1, will be similar to the on-line Sessions 1, 2 and 3.
However, based on your feedback together with transitioning the sessions to an online delivery this has resulted in some differences which we believe will be valuable. It will be an opportunity to meet and connect with your cohort peers and to engage with both new and old Facilitators.
We strongly recommend you complete all sessions of the online program.
