Recorded Spring 2020

Join us for a new on-demand series, “Leadership Under Pressure”. This four-part series is moderated by Dr. Hilary Worthen, course director for the ACCMA Physician Leadership Program. Each session is led by different speakers, who will bring their own unique leadership and adversity training to the session. These unique learning experiences are modeled on hospital visit rounds, with “cases” or different challenging situations presented by the participants. Our visiting faculty discuss the case, identifying key aspects and relevant leadership principles, followed by an open discussion. Four CME credits are available upon completion.
