WHA Physician Leadership Development Conference
March 9-10, 2018
The American Club, Kohler, WI
Physician leaders must represent both clinical and managerial interests, and at the annual "Physician Leadership Development Conference," presenting faculty from the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) focused on important leadership skills that help new and seasoned physician leaders move beyond their clinical training and take a new approach to managerial decision-making and problem solving.
The 2018 event includes a full-day with Allison Linney focusing on the skills needed to make conflict productive, make attendees aware of their own conflict styles, and allow them to practice conflict management and effective communication skills in a session titled “A Leader’s Guide to Resolving Conflict.” In addition, a half-day discussion, led by Craig Clapper, will focus on the physician leader’s role in shaping performance culture, discussing the principles of high reliability and how they are applied to health care, and demonstrating various skills physician leaders can use to shape culture to improve safety, quality, experience and efficiency. Continuing medical education credits are available again this year.
