The Center Receives Two-Year Physician Leadership Grant from

The Physicians Foundation

 

The Physicians Foundation has awarded the Center for a Healthy Maryland, Inc., an affiliate of MedChi, The Maryland State Medical Society, a two-year grant for the implementation of a Certificate Program in Physician Leadership.  This project will expand the Maryland Physician Leadership Institute, developed under a previous Physician Foundation Leadership Innovation Grant, by creating a Certificate Program in Physician Leadership and offering the program both online and in diverse Maryland geographic areas. It is anticipated that this program will empower and encourage leadership – to equip physicians with critical information in the era of health reform, and help them understand why their leadership is critical to the healthcare delivery system, the future of Medicine, and ultimately, to the health of their patients. The program will consist of distinct topics, rolled out in a series of online presentations, followed by a live, interactive session in each of four regions of the state.

“This is an important initiative to help Maryland physicians cultivate valuable leadership skills,” said Walker Ray, MD, President, The Physicians Foundation. “We are pleased to fund and support the Center for a Healthy Maryland and the great work that will emanate from this grant.”

“We are very pleased that the Center for a Healthy Maryland at MedChi has once again been recognized for our extensive experience in physician training and advocacy,” said Gene Ransom, CEO of MedChi, The Maryland State Medical Society. Project Director Roberta Herbst anticipates that “the Certificate Program in Physician Leadership will impart to physicians the knowledge and confidence to organize their colleagues and drive improvements in medicine.”

The Certificate Program in Physician Leadership is now accepting registration.
