Georgia Physicians Leadership Academy

The Georgia Physicians Leadership Academy (GPLA) was established in 2007 to develop physician leaders who will enhance the medical profession and the health care system and the quality of life in the state. GPLA is a year-long program that is broken down into six sessions. Five of those sessions take place on weekends, while the sixth (Session V) takes place during the work week. Those sessions will include curriculum that provides skills around media communication, conflict resolution, and advocacy. Physicians will also complete a confidential individualized 360 degree evaluation tool. The program will culminate with leadership project presentations and a graduation ceremony.
