Physician executives group

regroupement md gestionnaires

Québec’s health care system is going through the greatest transformation it has seen in 30 years. This shift means that the directors of professional services (DPSs) and physician executives must acquire the tools to carry out their role adequately in the new structures and contribute effectively to the optimal organization of services for the public and patients. To meet these needs, the QMA has decided to create a physician executives group. Like the future changes to Québec’s health care system, the content of the site and the services that the QMA is offering for physician executives will evolve to adapt to their new needs and provide improved support.

The purpose of the group is to offer physician executives a suitable place for discussion and exchange in order to reinforce the medical values underlying the management aspect of their work. It offers support to help with organizing services and managing medical affairs focused on renewed clinical governance, enabling them to acquire the tools needed to:

  • Coordinate medical activities
  • Organize services and manage clinical sectors
  • Continue to improve quality

It also encourages physicians to get involved in the strategic management of institutions in order to foster a medical administrative partnership. Furthermore, it supports them in developing policies and action plans related to organizing and delivering quality clinical services.
