Developing leadership and business skills is every radiologist’s business!
Join your colleagues in Montreal to engage in a two-day course designed to teach business principles that are pertinent to current challenges in Canadian radiology departments.
This series will include lectures and an extended focus on interactive and small group learning activities. The participants will have the opportunity to optimize their ability to effectively negotiate:
- budget presentations to ensure medical imaging is a top priority
- equipment purchasing decisions to upgrade outdated machines and instruments
- "turf" issues with other specialties
- group/practice work schedules to address waitlists.
The Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR), Canadian Radiological Foundation (CRF), and UBC Sauder School of Business have partnered to offer a series of courses, based on a nationwide survey demonstrating that Canadian radiologists want leadership and business skills to improve their practices. The second of this popular series, Leadership in Radiology – Negotiation Strategies for Canadian Radiologists will delve into how radiologists can improve their negotiating skills and, facilitate improved working relationships across the continuum of radiology and provide practical solutions for challenging stakeholder issues.
