LEADERSHIP ACADEMY EXPLORES HEALTH CARE INNOVATION

TMA President-Elect Tom Garcia, MD, and I attended the Physicians Foundation Leadership Academy at Duke University. Using a combination of lectures and small-group exercises, the program examined the impact of health care innovation versus improvements in medical technology, behavioral economics, and other leadership topics. Every year since the academy began, TMA’s president-elect has attended along with one of our senior staff members. It’s excellent preparation for the challenges that lie ahead. (And speaking of The Physicians Foundation, there’s still time for you to take the foundation’s biennial survey of American physicians. Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a drawing to win a $10,000 Travel Voucher, a $2,000 Apple voucher, or one of multiple iPad Airs.)
