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 partnership with the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership and Lumunos to deliver the Physician Executive Leadership Institute Foundational Course commencing this November. Click here to see the 2019 inaugural cohort.
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. 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. 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 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.
