Institute for Medical Quality Offers Stepping Up to Leadership Program

The Institute for Medical Quality and the PACE Program at UC San Diego are proud to announce an unparalleled opportunity for medical staff leaders. The Stepping Up to Leadership program trains medical staff leaders in issues of communication, problem-solving, and improving outcomes for patients and staff—and it’s more accessible than ever. The Stepping Up to Leadership conference will take place on November 7-9, 2013; March 6-8, 2014; and May 8-10, 2014 at locations throughout the United States.

The current medical landscape requires leaders who work together and with administrators to make decisions in the best interest of patient safety and excellent care. Stepping Up to Leadership helps physicians develop the skills and expertise to lead a successful medical staff. With significant support from The Physicians Foundation, the partnership between IMQ and PACE combines IMQ’s expertise in medical staff matters with PACE’s deep understanding of communication and assessment. Stepping Up to Leadership offers unique hands-on learning opportunities, focusing on interactive small-group teaching modalities for deep understanding. The program features excellent faculty and course work on effective staff leadership, credentialing and privileging, assessing the needs of the organization, using CME effectively, resolving on-call issues, improved communication skills, using quality measures effectively, legal considerations, and managing disruptive or impaired colleagues.

“The Physicians Foundation is committed to equipping physicians with the leadership, business and management skills needed to practice medicine successfully in today’s changing healthcare environment,” said Dr. Alan Plummer, Physicians Foundation Vice President and chairman of the Grants committee. “We are pleased to fund and support the Stepping Up to Leadership program that aims to help doctors build these skills that will drive healthcare excellence.”

For the first time, Stepping Up to Leadership is available as a national event, with events in San Antonio, Texas (November 7-9, 2013); San Diego, California (March 6-8, 2014); and Washington, DC (May 8-10, 2014).  A generous grant from the Physicians Foundation allows IMQ and PACE to offer Stepping Up to Leadership at prices as low as $595 for three days, making this an unbeatable opportunity.
