The Department of Medicine’s Business of Medicine Leadership Program (BMLP) is designed to provide clinical faculty and emerging leaders with a professional development opportunity that increases business acumen, leadership skills and expertise.

Academic physician leaders will develop and secure skills that match system and departmental alignment needs:

  • Develop a toolkit of skills to enhance business acumen and leadership.
  • Leverage knowledge in order to position ideas more persuasively, increase team productivity and lead others more effectively.
  • Strengthen overall business acumen and gain a better understanding of financial acumen, including the key frameworks, models and levers that drive organizational success.
  • Increase innovation capability via the development of an “intrapreneur” mindset, system and roadmap.
  • Incorporate Lean in the academic and practice arena.

 

TIME COMMITMENT AND SUPPORT

The program will meet one Friday morning per month (September, October, November and December) for 3.5-4 hours for highly interactive in-depth faculty-led sessions that allow for application and integration of the tools and knowledge. Prior to each in-residence session, participants will engage in asynchronous online, faculty-facilitated sessions, utilizing videos, readings, assignments and discussion boards with peers and faculty to learn fundamentals and implement team action learning projects to apply concepts.

 

FAPDD will pay 50% of the program costs and departments will be expected to cover the other 50% of the program costs (through CME or other departmental funds). The cost to departments will depend on cohort size, but will not exceed $1,000.
