KIPL started in 2002 with Leadership College, thanks to Elizabeth Kanof, MD, and Mike Brennan, MD, and their belief in the need and importance of physician leadership. Since its founding, additional programs addressing important needs such as clinical quality and business skills have been added. More than 250 physicians and PA-C’s are alumni of the programs, many of whom continue to be involved with the Medical Society and have advanced further in their individual careers!
The Leadership College 2017 and Health Care Leadership & Management 2017 programs are quite different, although both are year-long and are conducted in a small group-formats and are project-based. The Leadership College focuses on leadership fundamentals to enhance physicians’ and PA-Cs’ core aptitudes to excel as leaders within organized medicine, hospitals, health care systems, medical staffs, group practices and in the public policy arena. Health Care Leadership & Management provides a critical framework for physician leaders based on economics and finance as well as leadership development.
Both programs help build skills in critical areas of leadership and management and further equip graduates to become more influential and effective as individual leaders. Leadership College emphasizes advocacy, while Health Care Leadership & Management emphasizes business skills.
