Leading the Future of Health & Health Care

For more than two decades, our customized physician leadership development programs have equipped medical professionals with critical skills to play a more vital role in health system operations and leadership.

Our Physician Leadership Academies incorporate a unique blend of applying a validated leadership competency model with a culminating experience in which they develop and present a Big Idea in medicine.

In this model, participants engage in an immersion learning process applying core leadership competencies through live and virtual training venues. The final months of the program are dedicated to developing their Big Idea in a chosen medical concentration.
