VMS Physician Executive Leadership Institute Foundational Course 2019

Meeting Vermont's Need for Physician Leaders

The Vermont Medical Society Education & Research Foundation is proud to announce its new partnership with the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership and Lumunos to deliver an inaugural Physician Executive Leadership Institute Foundational Course commencing this November.
 
The Foundational Course has been designed to develop basic leadership skills and concepts for Vermont physicians. This course aims to build a skilled network of physician leaders who have the experience, commitment, and passion to lead initiatives that will transform and improve health and healthcare systems at local, regional, and statewide levels. Because the course includes a focus on both leadership and management content, it is a good fit for physicians who would like to build their effectiveness in organizational leadership. Physicians who are currently in leadership roles or aspire to take on leadership roles are encouraged to participate. It is particularly aimed at physicians with 5 or more years of clinical experience, but minimal formal leadership training. The course has been designed for a cohort of 15-20 physicians from across Vermont. To learn more about the program, including the schedule and topics, please see the attached brochure.  
 
Physicians interested in attending should submit a CV and brief description of their interest to swinters@vtmd.org. Applications are due by August 16, 2019.  Please note that some hospitals or practices may have their own process for nominating and selecting candidates.
 
A highly experienced Hanley Center faculty member and expert in organizational development will work with Vermont faculty to deliver national caliber content drawn from multiple sources, including the Harvard Business Publishing online Harvard Manage Mentor resource. It will also include topic-focused modules offered in two 3-hour sessions on a bi-monthly basis over a 12-month period of time. Four 90-minute focused virtual sessions will also be offered in the “off months.” In addition, individual and/or small group coaching is available to the participants during the course. After the completion of the course, participants will continue to meet quarterly with skilled Lumunos facilitators to apply learnings to real time leadership challenges, while providing peer support. The physician leader attending this program will benefit from the following:
  • A 40-hour curriculum incorporating online resources of Harvard Business Publishing
  • 40 Category One CME credits (application in process) *
  • One-on-one or group leadership coaching
  • Certificate of Completion
  • Four quarterly alumni meetings to process leadership challenges
  • Long standing and supportive networks of physicians across the state
  • A higher level of personal and professional development
COURSE OBJECTIVES
The Foundational Course Objectives:
1. Equip physicians stepping into or already in leadership positions with the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful in their leadership roles.
2. Impart the language of business to more effectively influence the healthcare system at the organizational level.
3. Enable physicians to be better prepared for the paradigm shift from clinical role to include a system view and leadership role.
4. Enhance physicians’ understanding and provide new tools and skills to improve the relational aspects of managing people and leading teams.
5. Create a trusted statewide physician cohort - that can be accessed by each other and the system – for leadership support.
