Description of CME Course

Organizational influence is perceived to have shifted away from physicians, and other healthcare providers, over the past couple decades, leaving them feeling undervalued, unsupported, and voiceless, as evidenced by a 2019 CMH Provider Wellbeing survey. All physicians/providers should view themselves as leaders, but they do not, and there are few opportunities to develop these skills (and none with an opportunity to receive feedback and practice skills). For those in leadership roles, there are inconsistent standards of behavior, including crucial conversations, performance evaluation, etc. which lead to feelings of inequity, resentment and decreased job satisfaction.

As a result, Leadership Center for Physicians (LCP) Leadership Essentials curriculum was developed, a series of workshops focused on self-development and management/awareness for leadership skills. Each topic area consists of two sessions – the first is an interactive workshop to teach leadership principles/concepts; the second session is a reflective/experiential learning session, where participants practice skills through activities, role play with peers, and/or small group conversations to practice applying the concepts they have just learned.

Through this curriculum, participants will feel empowered as leaders within the organization and beyond, have increased job satisfaction, and ultimately improved patient safety and culture of service.
