SHM's Leadership Academy: Everything They Don't Teach in Medical School


 

Leadership Academy is Oct. 1-4 at the majestic Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch in Arizona, a 27-acre hotel-resort near the scenic McDowell Mountains.

Hospital medicine groups continue to grow and thrive across the country. And as they do, HM groups need experienced leaders to drive them toward continued success.

After all, the skills needed to lead hospitalist groups rarely are taught in medical school. And before employers—or potential employers—elevate hospitalists to senior positions, they need to be assured that their up-and-coming leaders can meet the challenge.

SHM’s specialty-leading Leadership Academy gives employers the confidence they want and new leaders the skill sets they need. The academy’s three courses comprise the only leadership-training program specifically designed for the challenges hospitalists face.

In the past, SHM has presented the Leadership Academy twice a year—once in the spring and once in fall. Now, SHM offers Leadership Academy once a year in the fall.

This year, hospitalists attending the Leadership Academy can take advantage of the majestic setting of the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch in Arizona, a 27-acre hotel-resort near the scenic McDowell Mountains.

The 2012 Leadership Academy will feature the entry-level course “Foundations of Leadership,” which helps hospitalists begin their leadership journey, and “Advanced Leadership: Strategies and Tools for Personal Leadership Excellence,” which enables hospitalists who have taken “Foundations of Leadership” to use their own personal leadership styles to drive culture change in their organizations.

Brendon Shank is SHM’s associate vice president of communications.
