116X – Growing Physician Leaders: A Military Construct for Civilian Organizations

Wednesday, March 25th

About the Session

This seminar will provide you with a theoretical construct for developing leaders and a practical application and operationalization of the model in the context of physician leadership. The session will focus on applying the Army’s Leader Requirements Model to civilian organizations wishing to enhance physician leadership within their organizations.

Short-term goals of the model include understanding the model; creating commonalities between theory and the civilian organization; and understanding both the pervasive need for physicians to take on leadership roles and that physician leadership is not a novel concept (physicians lead naturally by virtue of their training and positions). Long-term goals include operationalizing the model to your own organizational development and physician leadership programs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the Army Leader Requirements Model and reproduce aspects of the model in your own organization.
  • Develop a physician-leader training program for your organization from the Army Leader Requirements Model.
