The program is designed for health care professionals and is offered by distance education both nationally and internationally. The courses are also offered in tutorial and webconference class format at McMaster University and health care organizations across Ontario.
The Leadership and Management Program presents a unique opportunity to engage in learning with a focus in healthcare leadership. As health care continues to undergo systems change, health care professionals are seeking leadership and management education that supports them in both formal and informal leadership roles in their workplace.
Throughout the curriculum the concept of leadership is approached from both clinical and business perspectives, reflecting both the CNA’s and the Canadian College of Health Service Executives’ position on leadership
The concepts and theories presented in the curriculum are supported with opportunities to apply these to the practice setting. This opportunity for application results in a more experiential understanding of the role of leadership and management in the health care system.
