The ISMA is launching a free pilot leadership program for medical students, residents/fellows and young physicians. This pilot is the first step in developing a more encompassing leadership program to meet the needs of ISMA future leaders and to help physicians maintain their influence.
The challenges of a changing health care system present many opportunities for physicians to step up and be leaders. Whether or not you consider yourself a leader, anyone can improve leadership skills or learn new ones.
Two topics crucial to leaders – mentoring and conflict resolution – will be covered in a day-long session Saturday, June 21, at the ISMA office, 322 Canal Walk, Indianapolis. Deadline to schedule your seat for the session is Wednesday, June 11.
Jim Funk, MS SPHR, an organizational and leadership development consultant, will conduct the training. Funk has designed and presented physician leadership training and assessments for health systems, hospitals and physician groups.
Seating is limited to 16-20 participants for the program, which will consist of two three-hour sessions with breaks and a noon networking lunch. During a reception at the end of the day, attendees will offer feedback on their experience.
