The Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership’s inaugural Health Care Leadership and Management class concluded its year-long training on June 11 with a final meeting at the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Center for Physician Leadership in Raleigh.
The nine members of this first class represent a variety of medical specialties and come from all parts of the state. Over the course of their year of study, they delved into topics like strategic planning, negotiation and financial literacy and learned how to apply their new knowledge to leadership roles in their organizations.
“A year of work paying off,” wrote graduate and NCMS Board Member Art Apolinario, MD, a family physician in Clinton on the NCMS Facebook page. “An amazing experience I recommend to any physician leader looking to make healthcare better.”
Health Care Leadership and Management is one of three leadership development tracks within the Institute. It provides participants with a critical framework based on economics, finance and leadership development along with the necessary business vocabulary to take on greater leadership positions in their career. The institute also offers more generalized leadership training through its Leadership College. The third track, CQ’U’, focuses on clinical quality initiatives.
