Ethical, moral and professional dilemmas arise daily in medicine. As physician leaders, you play a key role in helping to prevent, identify and resolve ethical and professional conflicts. This two-day course provides a foundation of relevant ethical concepts with decision-making tools and resources for commonly encountered challenges. Building on these concepts, we will analyze professionalism from an individual and systems perspective. Using collegial conversations, we will explore the role of physicians, leaders and institutions to create environments that promote compassionate and accountable behaviour.

Return on investment:

  • Understand and explain relevant ethical concepts and principles as they apply to leadership roles
  • Identify and address ethical dilemmas and conflicts that arise in day-to-day management
  • Incorporate current understanding of medical professionalism in your leadership strategy, including collegial conversation skills
  • Use resources and tools for effective decision-making and reflection.
