  • Leadership Development Initiative

    Building Physician Leaders among Practicing Physicians

    Physicians in the United States are experiencing major change as a result of several change drivers — health reform, financial pressures and changing public attitudes. Restructuring of the clinical practice has also put pressure on any aspect of oversight, and every aspect of quality. Whereas medicine changed slowly in the 60s and 70s, like the rest of the world it now changes every six months. Physicians need leaders and physician administrators who can help move to the next level and help other physicians manage this transition to the next system of care.

    This program brings together physicians to move forward, to forge ahead and to be a resource to structure the future for physicians. Combining communication, advocacy and finance, with leadership as a common thread, this course is designed to learn materials to benefit the physician, to use the learning goals immediately and to enjoy the experience. Advocacy is an important feature and part of the class is intended to be at the Texas Capitol in the spring. This course will be interactive and personal — like “see one, do one, teach one” was in residency. The teaching methods center on minimizing lecture or didactic class, and emphasize interactive, scenario training and case-based learning. This course will move and challenge the learner. The faculty members were selected based on their methods and their teaching style as well as being subject matter experts. With an outstanding business and medical school faculty making the attendee/faculty ratio low, it will be close and non-traditional.

    Objectives

    An overall objective of the course is to develop leadership abilities and to develop an understanding of concepts, and an aspiration to know more. An objective of the course is to stimulate lifelong learning. An objective of the course is for the attendee to “see one, do one, and teach one.”

  • Education for Healthcare Professionals (EDHP)

    The purpose of the Graduate Program in EDHP is to provide the training necessary to produce effective leaders in health professions education. Accordingly, the program recruits health professionals who have, or are preparing for, educational leadership positions, but lack formal training in education and/or leadership. Students may be awarded 14 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM   for completing the core education courses. These courses combined produce the certificate.
