The Cumming School of Medicine in partnership with the Haskayne School of Business offers a leadership training program aimed at strengthening the leadership capacity of medical clinicians and scientists. 

Participants practice business theory in experiential exercises to build relevant skills and knowledge for health-care administration. Participants and their respective departments are also exposed to diverse leadership experiences that enable them to form optimal leadership practices for the CSM.

A unique aspect of this program is that participants develop action learning plans to initiate desired changes in their respective units, making the program practical and relevant.  Participants receive extensive coaching from Haskayne faculty in the development of their plans.

Founded in 2012, the Academy offers opportunities for new and experienced academic leaders - deans, department heads, associate deans, program directors, committee chairs - to further their leadership capacity, and forms part of the university's commitment to developing, attracting, and retaining highly competent and effective senior academic leaders.
