Physician Leadership College
Prepares Leaders for Todays Challenges and Tomorrows Opportunities
Physician leadership requires a unique set of skills and presents special challenges. However, many physicians today are being asked to assume leadership roles without the requisite education and preparation. The result is a growing number of physician executives who are seeking greater understanding of their leadership role in relation to their physician peers, administrators, as well as their organizations.
The Physician Leadership College is designed for physicians who have had significant leadership experience and who anticipate an increasing interest and commitment within their organizations. While most participants will be sponsored by their organizations, some may choose to enroll independently.
Physician Leadership College can help you become more:
- Influential in motivating and inspiring others, managing and resolving conflicts, and working with administration
- Effective in creating best practices, as well as improving health care outcomes, employee performance, financial results, and more
- Confident in your ability to step up to new leadership opportunities and find creative solutions to challenges
- Respected by administrators, peers and direct reports because of the confident, principled and ethical ways in which you approach your leadership privilege
