Welcome to the Leadership and Management Program (LMP). As Director, I am pleased to introduce you to a rewarding interprofessional education experience.

Health care is facing complex challenges and exciting opportunities. Proactive and effective leaders are essential to the successful transformation of the system. The Leadership and Management Program provides innovative education to formal and informal leaders in all sectors of health care.

The LMP, which is designed based on the foundations of problem-based, self- directed learning philosophy supports life-long learning.  The Program offers six courses. These courses can be taken as stand-alone courses or successful accomplishment of all six courses leads to a Certificate of completion.


Courses are offered in three modalities:

  1. Classroom
  2. Web-conferencing
  3. Distance education

As well the LMP offers Workshops and Institutes that link education and practice to current issues in health care.

Our faculty bring academic preparation in the areas of leadership and management complemented by extensive experience in clinical and senior administrative leadership roles in all sectors of health care. With over 15 years of experience offering leadership education locally, nationally and internationally, the LMP has a reputation of responsive education that assists current and aspiring leaders to create and sustain leadership capacity.
