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. They are also expected to contribute to team projects that will drive real results for the Montefiore Health System.
Physicians need more than excellent clinical skills to deliver great outcomes. Health care today is a team sport that requires advanced leadership and collaboration skills. The Physician as Leader courses and workshops cover topics not included during a traditional clinical education and are designed to help physicians enhance their leadership and business skills as leaders of the care team.
Physician as Leader is a set of elective courses that are open to all physicians and physician leaders and are appropriate for any physician who wants to develop her or his leadership, interpersonal, and business skills.
All sessions are open enrollment, allowing physicians to choose courses that fit their interests and schedule. Sessions range from three to eight hours, depending on the topic.
Nurse leaders are pivotal in ensuring quality care, as well as the development, retention, and level of engagement of the staff, and overall unit productivity. To be successful, nurse leaders must possess administrative confidence, business and financial skills, broad clinical expertise and a thorough understanding of leadership principles.
Curriculum in Montefiore’s Nurse Leadership Academy is aligned to both Montefiore’s leadership imperatives and AONL’s leadership competencies and is designed to help nurse leaders achieve the highest levels of individual and team performance.
The Nurse Manager program provides the leadership and business skills that nurse managers need to thrive in their role. Through rich leadership and management program curriculum, this leadership development program will prepare nurse managers to be better able to meet the challenges of the evolving and complex health care environment.
Nurse managers will leave the program with:
