Rotman-OMA Physician Leadership

Strengthening the leadership role of doctors in patient care and improving the health-care system

Following a successful launch in 2023, the OMA is excited to offer the innovative Physician Leadership Program in 2024 in partnership with the Rotman School of Management.

This premier program uniquely designed for physicians will give emerging leaders the skills they need to drive Ontario’s health-care system transformation that benefits the province's doctors and patients. This program is exclusively for OMA members and accepts 30 applicants each year who have pioneering ideas, a passion for change and are committed to learning alongside other future thought leaders.

Program Features:

Co-consulting teams

The co-consulting teams help participants develop answers to their problems and issues based on their individual and collective expertise. The co-consulting team, which is formed among participants, is designed to create trust and respect between members and provide an additional way in which they can connect and support one another.

Action learning projects

Participants will be asked to come to the program with a proposed transformational change initiative, providing an anchor for the program and individual course work that will be applied throughout the program. Participants will work to apply what they have learned and develop a plan to address an interpersonal, organizational or system challenge.

Fireside leader discussions

Participants will be offered the opportunity to engage with the program’s curated panel of health-system leaders between modules. Leaders will host a series of one-hour, small group coffee chats at regular intervals. The coffee chats are informal conversations, led by questions from the participants to provide insight into leadership challenges they are facing. Topics can also be related to roles, career options, skills, competencies or any other challenge.

OMA Physician Leadership Advisory Network

The leadership network and the supported platform provide participants with the opportunity to connect with advisers who might otherwise be difficult to access. It helps participants consider and plan for their possible leadership role(s) over the course of their careers. The OMA Physician Leadership Network will be available to participants following the completion of their programs, allowing them continued access to advisers as well as their peers in the other OMA-Rotman cohorts.
