The Physicians Foundation Awards Grant to Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership

The award-winning leadership development programs that are part of the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Foundation’s Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership (KIPL), have received a $150,000 grant from The Physicians Foundation. The money will support two cohorts of the Leadership College and continue to grow and train Kanof Institute faculty over the next two years.

The Physicians Foundation, is a national organization that seeks to empower physicians to lead in the delivery of high-quality, cost-efficient health care through grants and research. Over the years, the Foundation has been highly supportive of the NCMS’ leadership development programs as well as its Toward Accountable Care Consortium and Initiative.

KIPL, through its Leadership College and Health Care Leadership and Management courses provide physicians and PAs in North Carolina with the tools and skills necessary to actively engage in the transformation of health care to value-based care. The programs prepare participants to engage with and influence key decision makers on the issues affecting the practice of medicine. The curriculum is developed with the quadruple aim in mind – that is enhancing patient experience, improving population health, reducing costs and improving work life of health care providers.

To date, KIPL has trained 335 leaders, many of whom today hold prominent leadership positions in health systems and private practices throughout the state. To learn more about KIPL and to apply to be a participant next year, visit the KIPL webpage.

The generous grant from The Physicians Foundation will allow KIPL to maintain reasonable tuition costs and to further develop the faculty, which is mainly practicing physicians and PAs.

Thank you to The Physicians Foundation and congratulations to KIPL for the grant award!
