TMA EXPLORING ACCOUNTABLE CARE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM WITH UT-DALLAS
"Physician-led” is a hot buzzword in health care reform circles, as it should be. Only physician-led programs can ensure that patient care is everyone’s top priority in the new accountable care environment. But do you have what it takes to take charge? We want to make sure, so TMA is developing a physician leadership program to teach skills needed for success in the new marketplace. TMA staff met with Michael J. Deegan, MD, clinical professor of healthcare leadership and innovation in the Naveen Jindal School of Management, The University of Texas at Dallas, to explore affiliating with the school’s Healthcare Leadership and Management for Physicians Certificate Program. A TMA Council on Practice Management Services task force will meet with Dr. Deegan later this month to discuss program design and curriculum, and to develop mutual goals for the 10-month program. It is anticipated that the first TMA class cohort would be accepted in March.
