Current research strongly suggests that today’s leader succeeds by creating positive and productive relationships, which includes the ability to make strong connections, share a vision, and inspire others toward a common goal. Women physicians can leverage their natural abilities to exercise their leadership skills in a variety of venues, some of which may be in a male-dominated environment.

This workshop provides a rare opportunity for women in the health care sector to slow down, reflect and examine their current or future leadership roles. This course focuses on deepening self-awareness and self-knowledge, identifying and developing individual skills and strengths, and highlighting capabilities necessary to address and successfully meet challenges unique to women leaders in health care. Each participant will have the insights and tools to create a customized leadership development plan, and identify practical first steps.

At the end of this Physician Leadership Institute course, current or emerging female leaders will be able to: 

  • Explore the leadership direction that resonates most strongly with them
  • Leverage their natural strengths to more effectively engage others and address factors that may be limiting their success
  • Identify what influences leadership and recognize both internal and external factors affecting the career progression of medical women today
  • Learn specific strategies to become more effective as a medical woman leader 
  • Identify opportunities to drive and support female physician leadership in our current and emerging complex health care system

The draft agenda listed above outlines a typical schedule for the program.  All topics will be address but order may vary.
