The Montefiore Learning Network, in partnership with Montefiore Health System executives, have designed leadership academies focused on building the leadership and business skills required of clinicians and healthcare administrative leaders today and in the future. While the academies vary by role, they share a comprehensive goal:
To equip Montefiore’s leaders with the skills, insights, and connections needed to lead others to achieve Montefiore’s mission.
Meeting the challenges facing Montefiore Health System today requires not just great teams and clinical practices, but great leaders that build on our exemplary clinical knowledge and practice experience. The Montefiore Physician Leadership Academy was designed to provide our physicians with the leadership and business skills critical in today’s dynamic healthcare environment. Few medical programs make a significant effort to prepare clinicians to take on leadership roles.
Through a variety of programs and experiences, we are committed to preparing physicians for greater successes and an enhanced work experience at all organizational levels.
Physician leaders, including vice-chairs, division chiefs and medical directors all play an important role in advancing Montefiore’s performance in all areas, including finance, patient safety and quality, organizational behavior, and beyond. This not only calls for new skills, but also comes with new challenges for physician leaders.
The Physician Leadership Program convenes physician leaders with an interdisciplinary faculty team for 24 months, meeting every other month. Through in-person learning sessions, case studies, real-time projects, coaching, mentoring, and discussions, you will acquire the understanding, insight, and definitive skillsets required to successfully lead within the constantly changing healthcare landscape.
Participants are expected to attend all scheduled sessions and will forfeit their seat if they miss more than 25% of the classroom sessions. The program is limited to 30 physician leaders per cohort.
