Medical Leadership Program

Please note, the UQ Business School has temporarily suspended admission until further notice.

In a fast-changing and challenging profession, medical doctors increasingly require influential leadership and business management skills. Technical expertise aside, to be an excellent medical practitioner you must effectively make decisions, communicate, negotiate, and work collaboratively with stakeholders.

The Medical Leadership Program (MLP), a tailormade Graduate Certificate in Business Leadership (GCBusLead), addresses these challenges. The Faculty of Medicine and Business School Executive Education teams partnered to develop a program that helps clinicians attain the leadership skills needed within the healthcare industry.

The MLP focuses on building your leadership skills and covers a range of topics, including high quality service delivery, communication, negotiation, and strategic thinking. To ensure that learning outcomes are industry focused, the MLP incorporates case studies and actionable learning techniques, allowing you to solve real healthcare and business problems.

Whether your career goals involve management, clinical team leadership, running your own practice or you simply wish to develop managerial and leadership skills to optimise your effectiveness in your current position, the MLP will prepare you with the fundamental business and interpersonal skills to succeed. 

Upon successful completion of the MLP, you will receive a GCBusLead qualification.
