Physician Leadership

There are many leadership training opportunities for physicians, including two/three-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 collaborated with Joule to offer two/three-day courses. Doctors Nova Scotia members are able to participate at a reduced rate because DNS is subsidizing 60 percent of the program costs for physicians.

Upcoming course(s)

The association is pleased to offer $200/weekend to cover expenses related to childcare. Review the Childcare Policy here.

Physician Leadership Development Program

The association has again collaborated with Joule to offer a Physician Leadership Development Program that aims to enhance the skills of experienced leaders to influence health system decisions that affect physicians and patients. The program is comprised of six, two-day modules to be completed over a six-month period.
