Build the skills you need to lead the way

You went to medical school to gain the clinical skills to become a physician, but what about business and leadership acumen? Whether you're looking for continuing professional development to build skills like communication, influence and negotiation, or for comprehensive leadership development and certification, we've got you covered.

With the Physician Leadership Institute, you can choose how you learn: individually with open enrollment courses, or as a team with tailored courses through our in-house program. Led by physician leaders and industry experts, all courses are accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons and the College of Family Physicians of Canada. We offer courses in both English and French.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all courses will be offered virtually until further notice. Class sizes are limited for an optimal learning and networking experience.
