Physician Leadership

There are many leadership training opportunities for physicians, including two-day Physician Leadership Institute (PLI) courses. Physicians interested in more in-depth training may apply to participate in the longer-term Physician Leadership Development Program (PLDP). 

Physician Leadership Institute

Doctors Nova Scotia has again collaborated with Joule to offer a two-day course "Leadership for Medical Women" on Oct. 26 and 27, 2019. The session will take place in Halifax.

Doctors Nova Scotia members are able to participate at a reduced rate because DNS is subsidizing 60 percent of the program costs for physicians.
