Course #1 The Business of Physician Leadership Program – The goal of this course is to improve your leadership, which will improve how you relate to those you work with as well as improve the outcomes of your patients. Contrary to common belief, good leadership is a learned quality. Character traits of charisma and personal magnetism are not the same as good leadership. All providers are leaders in their practice. It doesn’t matter whether you are in academics, employed by a hospital, or in private practice, the fact is, you lead every day! Others look up to you and expect direction. The manner in which you provide leadership will eventually affect the quality, safety and cost of the care you deliver to your patients. This course will help you identify your present leadership style and then lead you to improve using the concept of “Quality Leadership” that has proven so successful in the corporate world.
