Physicians interested in attending a new leadership training program being offered by the California Medical Association's Institute of Medical Quality (IMQ) in March should sign up soon. CMA members who register by the early bird deadline of February 11 will save $120.
Entitled "Stepping Up to Leadership - IMQ/PACE Platinum Training Program for Physician Leaders," The program will be held March 11-13 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel in San Diego.
This program will provide medical staff leaders with the practical knowledge and skills needed to lead their medical staffs and communities. It offers an interactive forum to empower physicians and reinforce learning.
Topics include how to fulfill leadership responsibilities, creating a culture of safety, data management and peer review (both clinical and legal), communicating effectively, running a medical staff meeting, resolving legal issues, the role of legal counsel, On-Call coverage and handling both the disruptive professional and the impaired physician.
Developed in response to requests for pragmatic answers to dilemmas facing physician leaders, the program is the product of collaboration between IMQ and the University of California, San Diego Physician Assessment & Clinical Education Program (PACE), and is funded in part by a grant from the Physicians Foundation.
The brochure and registration information can be found at the IMQ website. Early registration ends on Feb. 11.
