Modern health care is a team sport, and one way or another every physician will find themselves leading teams. Surgeons lead surgical teams. Senior residents lead teams of newly minted doctors. Senior clinicians lead teams redesigning how illnesses are handled. Some physicians will move on to become directors, CMOs, or Medical Presidents. The changing medical landscape has fundamentally shifted the skills needed to handle all these roles.
Physician leaders face daunting new challenges – including increasingly hectic schedules and difficult demands brought about by radical shifts in how we deliver (and pay for) health services. Leaders hear dissatisfactions and concerns from management above and staff below but, in many cases, they are not in a position to effect change directly or quickly.
Imagine having an opportunity to talk with your leadership colleagues in a guided but informal way. A Lumunos Physician Colleagues® Leaders program creates space for facilitated conversations between medical leaders on topics relevant to them. In a Physician Leader forum, physicians gain wisdom and support from others who understand the opportunities, pressures, and demands of being in these unique and challenging roles. Our leadership program dives into the ideas and real-world practices that will move a leader toward being a source of inspiration for those they work with.
