Details of Scholarship
In a fast-changing and challenging profession, medical doctors increasingly require influential leadership and business management skills. Technical expertise aside, to be an excellent medical practitioner you must effectively make decisions, communicate, negotiate, and work collaboratively with stakeholders.
The Medical Leadership Program (MLP), a tailormade Graduate Certificate in Business Leadership (GCBusLead), addresses these challenges. The Faculty of Medicine and Business School Executive Education teams partnered to develop a program that helps clinicians attain the leadership skills needed within the healthcare industry.
The Yuen Family Excellence in Medical Leadership Scholarships Australia focuses on building your leadership skills and covers a range of topics, including high quality service delivery, communication, negotiation, and strategic thinking. To ensure that learning outcomes are industry focused, the MLP incorporates case studies and actionable learning techniques, allowing you to solve real healthcare and business problems.
The Scholarships was established in 2012 through a donation from alumnus Dr Natalis Yuen and his family.
The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage and support a high achieving medical student who is undertaking the Medical Leadership Program.
This Yuen Family Excellence in Medical Leadership Scholarships Australia is available to current full time students who have successfully completed the first year of the MD/MBBS program, who meet the requirements for entry into the MLP.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic achievement and personal qualities, including leadership interest and potential. Applicants from rural backgrounds will also be considered favourably.
Whether your career goals involve management, clinical team leadership, running your own practice or you simply wish to develop managerial and leadership skills to optimise your effectiveness in your current position, the MLP will prepare you with the fundamental business and interpersonal skills to succeed.
Upon successful completion of the MLP, you will receive a GCBusLead qualification.
