KMS commited to physician leadership education
In today's evolving health system, the need for physicians with strong leadership skills has never been greater. In order to help prepare the physician community to meet this need, the Kansas Medical Society has created its physician Leadership Institute. The Institute is a partnership between KMS and the Wichita-based Kansas Leadership Center; it is being made possible through the generous support of the KaMMCO Foundation.
In the coming year, KMS will build on the success of its popular "one-day experience" programs. Those events--which were held in different communities--provided attendees an introduction to key leadership principles and an overview of successful leadership. In 2017, the KMS Leadership Institute will make available a more intensive and focused curriculum which will provide participants with a "deeper dive" into leadership skills and important managerial competencies. As a part of that content development process, KMS is also working closely with the Kansas Hospital Association on designing future programming for those physicians who want to prepare for leadership roles in hospitals and health systems.
