Stepping Up to Leadership

This grant offers a two day, Stepping Up To Leadership Program which brings together medical staff leaders, including Chiefs of Staff, committee members, and department chairs, to participate in skill-building interactive sessions led by established experts in their fields.  This program will cover topics that are most relevant to medical staff leaders as determined by our planning committee, survey of medical staff leaders, evaluation forms and input from CAMSS and OMSS. The grantee will conduct research through a literature search and one on one discussions with medical staff professionals to provide the planning committee with more feedback in considering topics.  The program will incorporate didactic presentations along with interactive sessions to help physicians learn skills they can implement in their own hospitals. During the role playing sessions, the grantee plans to create smaller breakout groups to make the role playing more beneficial to the participants.  Session will be taped and those tapes used to create learning modules which will be available on-line 24/7 with CME credit.
