The dynamics of healthcare are changing rapidly, with the focus shifting from the individual skill of the physician to the ability of a team of clinicians to care for one or many patients. Being able to evolve healthcare delivery demands new leadership and new business skills — training that physicians do not receive in medical school.

Enter the Physician Executive Series. HealthLeaders Media, in conjunction with top-ranking Emory University Goizueta Business School, have created “Leadership Tools for Physicians,” the first course of the Physician Executive Series to fast-track physicians’ knowledge in core business topics. The course—made up of four webcasts—is led by senior faculty who are experts in their field and provide physicians with in-depth understanding of critical business topics.

The program is structured with a physicians’ demanding schedule in mind. Each one-hour webcast is broadcast live at 5 p.m. ET every other Thursday, beginning on January 28, 2016, or can be conveniently viewed on-demand any time after the webcast. Participants have ample opportunity for discussion and questions. Each webcast offers 1 CME credit per program (4 in total) for physicians interested in receiving Continuing Medical Education*.

“I’m thrilled that this is being led by world-renowned thought leaders from Emory University Goizueta Business School, whose executive programs are ranked among the best in the nation,” says Elizabeth Petersen, Executive Vice President of HealthLeaders Media. “This, coupled with HealthLeaders Media’s award-winning coverage of the business of healthcare, ensures this cutting-edge course will deliver the on-point, CME-certified training* that physician leaders need.”

Leadership Tools for Physicians includes the following topics:

  • The Business of Healthcare; Steve Culler, Ph.D.
  • Leading Highly Effective Teams; Peter Topping, Ph.D.
  • Strategic Alignment in a Value-based Healthcare Organization; Steve Walton, Ph.D.
  • Emotional Intelligence; Rick Gilkey, Ph.D.
