What other doctors say about the programme...

Great platform for training in management and leadership.

Joana Ferraria

Great Platform!!

I have just not long started my management and leadership role as a Nurse in Charge in an Intensive Care Unit and this platform has definitely helped my development, with very up-to-date and extremely interesting content adjusted to all levels of experience.

Excellent. Highly recommended

I have been on different leadership courses over the past 15 years. This is by far the most complete leadership and management course that I have completed. There are modules for all the key components of how to become an excellent leader. Insights from established leaders provides credibility to the information source. Looking forward to further modules from Generation Leader.

The medical leader program which involves the videos, interviews and presentations are a excellent way to have a insight and real life scenario in how to manage the many but very import challenges that you will face someday as a medical doctor and leader. I’m very delighted to have the opportunity to further develop my management and leader skills.
