Canadian Leadership Institute for Medical Education (CLIME) 1.0

The Canadian Association for Medical Education (CAME) will be delivering our popular faculty development program in leadership, Canadian Leadership Institute for Medical Education (CLIME) 1.0, once again, and registration is open for two upcoming in-person deliveries. These deliveries will be taking place in Ottawa, November 13-16, 2023, and Vancouver, May 27-30, 2024. This course will be offered in English, and space is limited to 45 participants for each session.

CAME created CLIME to develop local, national & international 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 the 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, teamwork, and networking opportunities. Moreover, case examples used during the program will be directly applicable to Health Professions Education.

By the end of CLIME 1.0, 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
• define “scholarship” with respect to medical education and discuss strategies to foster scholarly work.
