Virtual Continuing Medical Education conference for physicians and executive leaders set for October

Lumina Leadership Institute (LLI) and Interstate Postgraduate Medical Association’s (IPMA) Ascent Physician Leadership are collaborating to host “Leading for Results: Building a Collaborative Leadership Model,” a virtual Continuing Medical Education (CME) conference for physician and executive leaders on Thursday, Oct. 14, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. CT.

Health care organizations are more often turning to physicians to fill leadership roles; however, most leadership teams lack adequate training in strategic planning, team building and performance measurement. This collaborative session will emphasize vital tools for physicians and executives as they lead change to realize organizational, financial, operational and clinical performance.
“You have heard it said that when the student is ready, the teacher will show up. Are you ready to be a student,” asked Doug McKinley, director of the LLI. “We have prepared a meaningful discussion for physicians and executives about leading with self-awareness, building teams with trust, and fostering a healthy organizational culture.”
Leadership starts with the individual, according to Debra Levinthal, executive director of IPMA.
“Today’s financial pressures, value-based care and risk-sharing requires executives and physicians to work together in dyads and triads to effectively create and execute strategy. This conference introduces key skills to becoming a high-performing leader.”

Attendees will leave the conference with actionable ideas to improve themselves, their teams and their organizations.

Registration is $49 per person with proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders. To access the event and register, visit www.eventbrite.com/e/leading-for-results-building-a-collaborative-leadership-model-tickets-164322744753.
