DUE TO INSUFFICIENT ENROLLMENT, THE 2018 PHYSICIAN LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE HAS BEEN CANCELED. AT THIS TIME, IT HAS NOT BEEN DETERMINED WHEN THE NEXT SESSION WILL BE HELD. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN A FUTURE SESSION, PLEASE CONTACT DAVE NOWAK IN THE SLMMS OFFICE AT DNOWAK@SLMMS.ORG OR 314-989-1014 TO BE ADDED TO THE CONTACT LIST. THANK YOU.
With a slightly modified schedule, the Physician Leadership Institute returns in 2018. The program will be presented over five Saturdays from February 10 through April 28, including four half-day morning sessions and one full-day session.
The highly-interactive, high-intensity course is designed for physicians only, and focuses on the development of leadership skills and a better understanding of the business side of practicing medicine. The PLI is planned and presented by Anders Health Care Services, Maryville University, and SLMMS.
Tailored for physicians who want to improve both their practice management and leadership skills, the PLI covers current relevant topics such as population health management, technology in healthcare, recent developments in employment law, and a better understanding of revenue cycles, documentation and coding, and reimbursement. Experts also provide updates on legal issues in medicine, medical ethics, and a practical risk management discussion. The program also includes a session aimed at reducing the risk of burnout and promoting balance in the medical practice.
Responding to input from past participants, the program has expanded its focus on building leadership skills. These are the primary topics of the first and final sessions, the latter now designed to be a “capstone” session aimed at application of the knowledge gained for future success.
The sessions on February 10 and 24, as well as April 7 and 28, will be half days running from 8:30 to 12:15 p.m. The middle session on March 10 is planned as a full day from 8:30 to 3:30 p.m. Classes will be held at Anders’ educational facilities in their offices at 800 Market Street, Suite 500, in downtown St. Louis. Up to 20 CME hours will be awarded for completion of the entire curriculum. Tuition is $900, discounted to $600 for SLMMS members, MSMA members or Anders clients. Group discounts are also available.
Nearly 40 physicians from St. Louis and throughout the state have graduated from the earlier Physician Leadership Institutes. These alumni will be invited to join this year’s participants for the final session to share how they are incorporating what they learned in the program in their medical careers.
