Doctors Manitoba is committed to helping our members understand and deal effectively with disruptive physician behavior from both an individual and systems perspective. The complex issues that cause and influence this behavior can be difficult to manage; physicians increasingly assume leadership roles with little formal training in how to handle this type of behavior. Doctors Manitoba, the Canadian Medical Association and its leadership development program, Physician Management Institute (PMI), all want to change that.

You do NOT have to be a University Department Head or hospital bigwig to attend the workshop. This course is designed for ALL physicians by other physicians. It is open to both CMA members and non-members—you can bring your staff.
