Leadership, Collaboration and Change in Healthcare: A Course for Emerging Leaders in Pathology
With healthcare in the United States changing rapidly to meet the mandate for high-quality, cost-effective, patient-centered care, the need for effective physician leaders has never been more cogent. Leadership and management skills are essential for individual physicians and for healthcare organizations to achieve the best outcomes. Formal cultivation of these skills has not been targeted to young faculty during their formative years, creating a professional practice gap and an opportunity.
This special course is intended for junior faculty (within their first five to seven years of practice) who are interested in developing skills that will benefit them as emerging leaders at their home institution, as well as within other professional organizations. The curriculum provides an opportunity for participants to experience a guided exploration of several areas of study that are critical to effective leadership, including the characteristics of effective leadership and effective teams, the concept of emotional intelligence as it applies to leadership, understanding organizational culture and strategy, and prevention of physician burnout. The course faculty are senior academicians with experience in education, mentorship, and functioning as leaders within a changing healthcare environment.
