Note: Registration is now closed for the Physician Leadership Institute. We have a full class of 25 registered participants. Watch for details regarding future sessions in Fall 2015 or Spring 2016.
The St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society (SLMMS) and Anders Health Care have partnered to create an all-new educational experience for doctors. The inaugural class of the Physician Leadership Institute will begin on February 21. This five-week, high-intensity program will concentrate on the business side of medical practice, with the objective of developing leadership and management skills.
Anders and SLMMS have designed this program in response to an identified need in the St. Louis physician community. Developing strong physician leaders and providing leadership training were objectives identified in the 2014 SLMMS Strategic Plan.
The curriculum is rooted in the six domains of the Medical Group Management Association, and was developed with input from the SLMMS CME Committee, local physicians and health care executives, and the Anders team. The five sessions are as follows:
Session 1 – Foundations of Health Care
Session 2 – Finance and Revenue
Session 3 – Practice Management
Session 4 – Risk and Compliance
Session 5 – Leadership Skills
The faculty will include many of the area’s most knowledgeable experts on topics relevant to all practitioners, whether they are independent, hospital-based, or part of a large group. Classes for the inaugural session will be interactive, and held on Saturday mornings in winter/spring of 2015 at Anders educational facilities in their offices at 800 Market Street, Suite 500, downtown St. Louis.
The dates for the five session are February 21, March 7, March 28, April 11, and May 2. The sessions run from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and tuition includes lunch, parking, and all program materials.
Up to 20 Continuing Medical Education hours will be awarded for completion of the entire curriculum. Tuition for the entire program, including lunch and all materials, is $500, discounted to $350 for all SLMMS members.
