Medical Leadership Program
In a fast-changing, tech-driven industry, medical professionals must develop outstanding leadership and management skills. Technical expertise aside, to be an excellent practitioner you must effectively make decisions, communicate, negotiate, and work collaboratively with stakeholders.
The Medical Leadership Program (MLP) is a tailor-made Graduate Certificate in Business Leadership (GCBusLead) designed specifically for UQ Medical students and resident doctors in Australia.
The MLP was developed by the UQ Faculty of Medicine in partnership with UQ Business School Executive Education to provide UQ Medical students and resident doctors with a pathway for gaining contextualised leadership skills.
The program provides you with the knowledge and learning pathways to develop your personal and professional capabilities. Focus areas include self-awareness and leadership style, strategic thinking, and service quality in healthcare and innovation.
To ensure that learning outcomes are industry focused, the MLP incorporates case studies and action learning techniques, where participants work in groups to solve real business problems. You will build a skillset of practical ideas, tools and behaviours which will help to advance your medical career.
Upon successfully completing the MLP you will receive a postgraduate leadership qualification.
