Leadership and Management Program

The Leadership and Management Program, Faculty of Health Sciences

The Leadership and Management Program, School of Nursing McMaster University has had a history of delivering quality education to healthcare professionals across Canada for almost 25 years. Under the leadership of Dr. Colleen McKey and her dedicated team, many nurses and other health care professionals have benefitted from exceptional learning experiences in healthcare leadership which they found applicable across healthcare systems and settings.


However, due to financial constraints, the School of Nursing has made the difficult decision to close the Leadership and Management Program at the end of 2017.


The Fall 2017 Leadership and Management Program courses will be offered as scheduled for this final session only. For any questions or concerns, please contact the Leadership and Management Program office at: (905) 525-9140 ext 22409 or by email at

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.
