Event Details:

The Stanford Physician Leadership Certificate Program is a 6-month cohort-based foundational learning experience where you will discover how to learn and implement the most important leadership skills that will take your career as a physician to the next level of success

The program provides participants with an evidence-based framework for personal growth, key management and leadership skills, and deep connection with peers. The program utilizes cases and simulations, plus peer and professional coaching that provides holistic support for the participants to understand, practice, and cultivate effective interpersonal, management, and leadership skills. Participants complete several psychometric tools that shed light on personal competencies and facilitate each participant’s leadership development plan.
