CAME's Canadian Leadership Institute for Medical Education (CLIME)

CAME created CLIME to develop national leaders in health sciences education and is designed to meet the needs of individuals who are engaged in leading initiatives that will promote excellence, innovation, change, and scholarship in Health Sciences. This Institute is geared towards Health Sciences educators who are in a position to implement new skills in the workplace. Teaching and learning methods will include: interactive lectures, individual assignments, self-reflection, small-group sessions, team work, and opportunities for networking. Moreover, case examples used during the program will be directly applicable to Health Sciences education.

We are pleased to inform you that CAME, in collaboration with the College of Family Physicians of Canada, and the Centre for Faculty Development, a partnership between the University of Toronto and St. Michael’s Hospital will be delivering the 2019 edition of the Canadian Leadership Institute for Medical Education (CLIME).

By the end of CLIME, participants will be able to:

  • identify their professional goals as leaders in the health professions and discuss ways of achieving these goals;
  • analyze their own leadership styles and consider how style influences practice, using different models of leadership and change;
  • apply a framework for analyzing change to specific situations in their own professional contexts;
  • master different conflict management styles and negotiation strategies;
  • describe an approach to establishing and leading effective teams; and
  • define “scholarship” with respect to medical education and discuss strategies to foster scholarly work.
