Physician Engagement is Focus of 2019 WHA Physician Leader Conference

February 19, 2019

There’s still time to identify an up-and-coming physician leader from your organization and invite him or her to the annual WHA Physician Leadership Development Conference at The American Club in Kohler. This year’s conference will be held March 15-16, and registration is still open. 

This year’s agenda will focus on strategies to gain physician buy-in for change, to successfully communicate organizational vision and goals, to build trust and confidence among stakeholders, and to identify group dynamics and engage staff in decision making.

Sessions in the traditional physician leadership development track will be presented by Stephen Beeson, MD, and Michael Guthrie, MD, both nationally recognized faculty from the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL). Both will discuss important and practical leadership skills that help physician leaders move beyond their clinical training and take a new approach to managerial decision making and problem solving.

Over the past 13 years, WHA has hosted nearly 2,000 physician leaders at the annual WHA Physician Leadership Development Conference, to assist members in providing the necessary education to new physician leaders and those identified as having leadership potential. Make sure your new physician leaders have the opportunity to attend by registering them today.
