Vermont Physician Leaders Initiative

With the generous support of the Physicians Foundation, the VMS Foundation is able to offer a leadership curriculum to all Vermont physicians interested in affecting the future of the region’s health care delivery system.  The intent of the program is three-fold:

  • Learning how to influence organizational and state policy and decisions;
  • Development of social networks; and,
  • Personal growth.

The program will consist of 17 day-long sessions between June 17, 2016, and Dec. 7th, 2018.  All sessions will be on Saturdays in Montpelier and will not overlap with holiday and summer vacations.  There will be a $100 registration fee for each session to cover venue costs and Category 1 CME.  

Thirteen of the sessions will be courses taught by nationally recognized experts convened by the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL).  Ten of these courses qualify for AAPL’s master’s degree in management and/or Certified Physician Executive (CPE) certificate. 

Four additional sessions will focus on local and national health care policy and include facilitated discussions with key local decision makers.

Participants will be encouraged to partner with others on shared leadership challenges.  Invited faculty will tailor their sessions to help with our shared challenges.  The interactive sessions with local policy makers will also highlight shared interests.

Registration for June 17th session is now open. Registration for subsequent sessions will open immediately after the conclusion of each preceding session.  Physicians are encouraged to participate in as many sessions as possible, but are not required to participate in all sessions.

Scholarships will be available to resident and fellows.
