TMA LEADERSHIP COLLEGE CLASS SURVIVES "BOOT CAMP"
From negotiating skills to liability risks for nonprofit board members, from personality types to media interviews, the 23 members of the charter class in the TMA Leadership College soaked up the knowledge at their four-day “boot camp.” The college’s mission is to instill strong and sustainable leadership qualities and promote the role of physicians as trusted leaders in their communities. “We believe it is essential to help grow new leaders from within, to lead from the exam room to the board room,” TMA President Sue Bailey, MD, told the scholars. Homework assignments, attending at least one First Tuesdays at the Capitol next year, and a final two days at TexMed 2011 in Houston will complete the students’ course work.
