Physician Leadership Program
Fundamentals of Leadership
As physicians in today’s dynamic health care environment, we need to be effective leaders in order to ensure organizational and individual success, and we need tangible leadership skills that build on our clinical knowledge and experience. Communicating a vision, motivating colleagues, leading teams, negotiating with payers, collaborating across silos – these skills enable physicians to build organizations, compete for resources, lead change, influence policy and overcome challenges.
The Physician Leadership Program, from the Alameda-Contra Costa Medical Association (ACCMA), is an innovative program developed in 2016 by physician leaders in collaboration with faculty from the UC Berkeley School of Public Health and Haas School of Business. It addresses the fact that physicians are, and should be, placed in roles with organizational responsibility, but have limited formal opportunities to learn the concepts, skills, and tools of leadership. It meets the educational need for a structured course that builds upon the deep knowledge that clinicians already have of complex systems such as the human body, families, and communities, as well as their experience of exerting influence through clinical encounters and clinical team leadership.
Each virtual session provides an intense, experiential learning experience led by nationally recognized faculty using a dynamic interactive online format. Supplemental materials, including literature, video links, short didactic talks developed by and for clinicians, and simple preparatory exercises, will be available online as preparation for the live portion of each course sessions and for those wishing to dig more deeply into the principles and practice of leadership. The program is sequenced and scheduled to accommodate busy physicians. Participants will gain practical skills and insights directly applicable to their practice opportunities and challenges.
