Education and Leadership

Physician Leadership Institute (PLI)
More and more, physicians are being called on to be leaders in the health-care system. If you'd like to develop your leadership skills, consider the SMA's in-house PLI program. These management and leadership classes are designed specifically for Canadian physicians.

The SMA will sponsor three medical students and three medical residents to attend each PLI course.
