    The Specialist Certificate in Clinical Leadership is a course designed for healthcare professionals who want to learn and develop practical leadership skills.

    The healthcare system requires leaders, but many clinicians take on leadership positions without any formal education. This practical course provides you with the leadership skills you need to best support your colleagues, patients and organisations. You will learn to develop and implement change initiatives, promote treatment quality, and drive safety excellence in healthcare settings.

    Who is this course for?

    Our program is targeted towards clinicians from all disciplines – including doctors, nurses, dentists and allied health professionals – who currently hold, or anticipate holding, leadership positions.


    Looking for a shorter commitment? The Intensive Clinical Leadership course is a three-day, assessment-free program. Participants have the opportunity to progress to the Specialist Certificate on completion.
