Our approach differs from other physician leadership development and coaching programs in the following ways:
- Takes the organization and overall priorities into consideration
- Evaluates leaders against an empirically-based competency model that differentiates physician leadership effectiveness
- Customized to focus on the areas leaders need to concentrate on
- Draws upon best practices in adult learning
- Can be used for succession planning for leaders within an organization
Return on Investment
In addition to positioning an organization for the future, APLA™ can lead to significant improvements in patient/employee satisfaction and engagement, quality outcomes, and financial strength. APLA™ also enhances the organization’s ability to promote internally and reduce turnover which translates to significant savings.
National Experts and Faculty
We draw upon our dedicated Academy faculty of national industry experts with deep expertise in physician leadership development, organizational development, healthcare trends, academia and research spanning all regions and industry topics. In addition, members of your organization often serve as Academy faculty and mentors.
Physician Executive Advisorship and Coaching
Participants are matched to our dedicated cadre of accomplished healthcare advisors and physician executive leadership coaches to create and implement the APLA™ approach. This partnership accelerates the learning process and reinforces ownership of personal development.
Organizational Priority Projects
Working either independently or in cross-functional teams, participants have the opportunity to improve their leadership skills while driving tangible results in structured experiential learning.In addition, physicians learn the skills of collaboration and coordination toward a common goal. Each project team is assigned a project champion (organizational sponsor) and an external advisor.
Coordinated Networking with Peer Physicians and Leaders
Given the active, participatory nature of the Academy, learning with and from your classmates is one of the most important aspects of the program. Participants learn as much from each other as they learn from the faculty, thereby creating a strong support system and a network of colleagues and friends that will be sustained well beyond the conclusion of the APLA™ curriculum.
