In today’s dynamic health care environment, physicians need to be more effective leaders to ensure organizational and individual success. We need tangible leadership skills that build on the clinical knowledge and practical experience. Communicating your vision, motivating colleagues, leading teams, negotiating with payers, collaborating across silos—these skills enable physicians to compete for resources, lead change, influence policy, and overcome challenges.
The Berkeley Physician Leadership Program—a partnership of the Center for Public Health Practice & Leadership (CPHPL) at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health and the Alameda-Contra Costa Medical Association (ACCMA)—is an innovative leadership program that was developed by physicians and UCB experts, for physicians. The program covers broad-based skills that strengthen physician leadership across specialties and modes of practice. Unique among leadership programs, this course will build on the solid foundation experienced clinicians bring to their work.
Each session provides a unique educational experience featuring nationally-recognized faculty and a dynamic, interactive format. The program is manageably sequenced and conveniently scheduled to accommodate busy physicians.
The program will provide a solid understanding of physician leadership and its importance in the emerging health care delivery environment. More importantly, participants will develop the tools needed to become effective leaders and make a difference. Participants will earn a UC Berkeley certificate of completion, and 17 hours of CME credits.
The program is now underway and registration is open for individual sessions. Space is limited.
