The Berkeley Physician Leadership Program

ACCMA will expand upon the successful Berkeley Physician Leadership Program to create a scalable, statewide program that is accessible to physicians throughout California. Using the core faculty and curriculum from program years one and two, we are planning to work in partnership with the California Medical Association (CMA) and other county medical societies to develop a statewide hybrid online/in-person program. At full scale, the program will be comprised of several regional cohorts located around California. Each cohort will participate concurrently in a highly interactive online learning module, which will be combined with regional in-person educational sessions that will focus on communication, teamwork, and relationship-building. The foundation of the program will be the curriculum that was developed jointly by UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, School of Public Health, and Center for Executive Education based on guidance and feedback from the ACCMA Physician Leadership Committee. The curriculum developed in 2016 has formed the basis of the program for the initial 2017 and 2018 program years.
