Are you a RACGP Fellow, with some leadership experience and looking to develop further as a leader? Come join us for a 30 minute presentation looking at the different domains, application process and how the program can drive change within Australian general practice.
Oliver Schulz runs the RACGP’s Future Leaders program.
After a storied career that spanned two decades over multiple continents working in, and leading small high performance teams in the military, Oliver sought to further enhance his understanding of leadership by broadening his education. He has since completed a Master’s in Business Administration with a focus on leadership and in 2018 was part of the inaugural doctoral program with the UNSW Public Leadership Research Group. Oliver’s dissertation focuses on leadership in high performance teams working in strategically sensitive environments.
In addition to his operational and academic perspectives on leadership, Oliver has also been employed in the practical development of leadership skills through the use of extreme sports and for four years worked as a subject matter expert in the field of white water rafting and white water kayaking instructor training. This included the planning and delivering of multi day wilderness expeditions aimed at putting group leaders into immersive, exhaustive and novel leadership situations to explore development opportunities and achieve learning outcomes.
Oliver has a keen interest in leadership at the coal face and has used his knowledge to help develop training activities for organizations such as Act for Kids and Soldier On. He comes to the RACGP with a desire to help GPs develop their leadership potential and drive change in the health services sector.
