Online Certificate Course Organization and Leadership

About this online Certificate Course

We are currently revising the certificate courses to make them align with the revised MHPE curriculum. For this reason, the revised course will start in December 2022.

Course Coordinator Mohammed Meziani, MSc:

‘The Certificate Course in Organization and Leadership is designed for participants who face the challenges of successfully managing and leading in health professions education or medical education.

Like any other organization, institutes for medical and health professions education cannot function without good leaders and managers. Staff members are often challenged with the demanding task to lead a multidisciplinary team, even though their professional training did not sufficiently prepare them to become a good manager and leader within an educational setting. How to become more successful in management and leadership in a medical and health professions education context?’


The study load of this course is 6 ECTS, which is equivalent to 168 study hours. The course needs to be completed in 9 weeks.
