Here’s a life-changing opportunity!

  • Form lasting supportive friendships with colleagues of like mind and similar experiences

  • Renew your passion for medicine, while learning sustainable ways to provide quality care and still have a life

You are important. Your healthcare organization needs strong physician leaders to create a
culture which prioritizes provider well-being as a way to deliver quality patient care.

This experience will give you a new view of physician leadership that challenges you to look
within more deeply, to renew how you engage in your work, and to develop the inner resilience
and capacity to influence the changes needed to take healthcare in a new direction. 

We believe our best hope for an improved system of health care lies in developing authentic,
compassionate physician leaders who are change agents. This time of unprecedented change
may be just the right opportunity for the kind of bold reform medicine needs.

Course Objectives:

  1. Experience personal and professional renewal.

  2. Develop specific leadership skills to engage your administration, colleagues, and clinical teams to facilitate the healing process, improve the delivery of care, and enhance professional satisfaction. 

  3. Acquire the skills to design and implement models of care that prioritize physician-patient relationships and support provide well-being.

  4. Develop a plan for thriving personally and professionally. 


  • Integrate proven, effective self-care practices into your daily life.

  • Access your own strengths in order to develop the gifts and talents of those around you.

  • Employ new approaches to listening and questioning making you more present to yourself, your family, and your colleagues.
