Medical Doctors in a Business Meeting

Advanced Management Programm für Ärztinnen/Ärzte

Entrepreneurial decision-making in the face of the everyday struggle between reason and profit

From the very beginning of their career, medical doctors embrace the principle of lifelong learning – in particular when it comes to technical topics. But why not apply the same to areas that also significantly impact your professional and personal success?

The Advanced Management Program for medical doctors (Advanced Management Program für Ärztinnen/Ärzte) starts exactly here. The intense program (2 x 2 days, plus short online sessions) was developed by WHU and MLP School of Financial Education (MLP SoFE) and addresses the daily challenges of medical doctors. A special focus is on the topics of finance, taxes, and digitalization. Further, you will reflect your leadership personality and will learn to become more resilient toward challenges and setbacks.

You will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance of WHU and MLP SoFE after successful completion of the program.
