Stephen Beeson, MD to Keynote 2019 Physician Leadership Development Conference

Register now for March 15-16 event – Early Bird Discount Available

November 13, 2018

Registration is now open for WHA’s 14th annual Physician Leadership Development Conference, scheduled for March 15-16, 2019, at The American Club in Kohler. The 2019 event will include a full-day program led by Stephen Beeson, MD, a nationally recognized expert in physician engagement and performance improvement. Dr. Beeson will focus on strategies that physician leaders in all stages of their careers can use to engage fellow physicians, building trust and confidence to get physician buy-in for change. 

New in 2019, there will be two education tracks for the Saturday portion of the conference. The traditional track is intended for developing physician leaders and will be led by Michael Guthrie, MD. Dr. Guthrie will focus on understanding and identifying group dynamics, discuss strategies to engage physicians in decision making, and share effective group discussions and meeting facilitation—all important skills to help a developing physician leader make the transition from clinician to leader.

The second track is designed specifically for senior physician leaders and chief medical officers. Attendees will examine and discuss the changing and future role of the senior physician leader. In addition, you will engage in a roundtable discussion to share experiences, challenges, best practices and opportunities with peer senior leaders and CMOs from hospitals and health systems across the state.

You can review the conference agenda, as well as register online. An early bird discount is available.
