Leadership Module

JuMP offers a leadership training program developing the next generation of leading researchers in musculoskeletal health, though a customized program for our trainees in collaboration with the Richard Ivey School of Business:

This component offers JuMP trainees an opportunity to:

  • Increase their personal leadership skills
  • Enhance their understanding of the business environment within which science operates
  • Enhance their understanding of how health care in Canada and elsewhere operates, and the connection between basic science, clinical practice and service delivery
  • Increase their skills, attributes and competencies to ensure they can operate in leadership positions in science environments.

Module A - Understanding Business Fundamentals:

strategy, leadership, change management, financial acumen; these courses are designed to ensure that our trainees understand critical concepts in business, which are applicable in their own programs and important in nurturing future industrial collaborations.

Module B- Personal Leadership:

developing high-performance teams, negotiation, influence without power, conflict resolution; these courses are essential for effective leadership.

Module C - The Health Care Environment:

health care policy (taught by Dr. Kellie Leitch, MD, MBA) and health care management; this module forms part of the existing Ivey MBA Health Care stream and is of critical importance to future MSK researchers.
