Congratulations to Our 2020 Physician Leadership Institute Graduates

On Wednesday, June 17, BayCare celebrated the graduation of its fourth group of Clinician Leaders.

The Physician Leadership Program, established in 2014 and re-introduced as the Physician Leadership Institute in 2019, is based upon our belief that clinician leadership is key to the success of our health system.

The goal of the program is to deliver leadership training that enables physicians to lead in the delivery of extraordinary health care. The combination of a formal curriculum and social engagement provides the core model for a comprehensive and sustainable leadership program.

Clinicians are nominated for program participation by senior leaders who have been identified as having leadership potential. Participants are respected by their peers, are committed to the community and exhibit the values of the organization.

Following the completion of a 10-month program, graduates are looked upon as an ever-increasing active voice in our system, participating in and leading initiatives that drive clinical and operational standards of excellence.

Join us in congratulating our 56 clinician graduates, including six graduates of the Turley Family Practice residency leadership track.
