The international Medical Leadership Training Program was launched in 2019 based on a bilateral agreement between the Faculty of Medicine at uOttawa and Université Claude Bernard Lyon (UCBL), France. This training program is meant to enhance the knowledge and skills of clinical professionals in management and health management and allow them to strategically manage an institution, a discipline, a department or a service. The goal is to train physicians in the fundamentals of organizational management. The program, designed specifically for UCBL teachers and delivered by HR professionals and leadership experts at the Faculty of Medicine, focuses on key skills necessary to lead in an ever-changing health care environment.
A first group of 10 international clinical experts from Lyon participated in the program in July 2019. This unique experience allowed them to better understand the North American approach when it comes to leading and also put in light that their challenges are actually very similar to the one their Canadian colleagues experience when it comes to leading and developing people.
