Young Physician Leadership Academy

The Louisiana State Medical Society (LSMS) Young Physician Leadership Academy will provide young physicians with experience and training in the core aptitudes to excel in leadership positions outside the practice of medicine, focusing on organized medicine and the business of medicine. Graduating physicians will develop leadership and communication skills that can be implemented into their personal and professional lives so that they can better represent the needs of their patients and other healthcare providers. Young physicians will be prepared and groomed for future leadership positions within the LSMS, their parish/component medical society and specialty society, as well as potential employers.
