Providers today are facing an era of change unlike any before. Reform policies, shifting requirements and fiscal uncertainty create a chaotic atmosphere for professionals as well as providers. During times like these, strong leaders who demonstrate innovation and focused decision-making abilities are required. That’s why IHA is partnering with the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative, Iowa Medical Society and Iowa Academy of Family Physicians to offer a certification program designed to help physicians gain the tools to become successful leaders in today’s complex health care environment.
The Physician Business Leadership Certificate is achieved through attending sessions scheduled quarterly, along with additional requirements in networking and involvement with other industry activities. Each session features a lineup of well-known physician faculty who will share their expertise on three main focus areas:
- Foundational Leadership Skills: Fundamental leadership and business skills
- Equipping for Health Care Today: Topics helping physicians improve their execution, efficiency, and effectiveness
- Hot Topics: Issues in health care delivery currently impacting physicians, such as the opioid crisis, behavioral health issues.
