About the Program

The Regional Health Senior Leadership Program, formerly known as the “Champlain LHIN Senior Leadership Program”, is an executive development program delivered through a partnership between the Telfer School of Management (University of Ottawa) and the Rotman School of Management (University of Toronto).   The program is designed to address the leadership development needs of executives, senior managers, and physician leaders and to improve opportunities for networking and collaboration between individuals and organizations.  Participants in the program are sponsored by the leaders of health service providers both large and small from across the region.  The program has been offered once per year since 2010. The program will be offered for the tenth year starting in January 2021.
