Montana Healthcare Excellence in Leadership Program

Applications are now being accepted for the 2024 class.

Review Program Description and Requirements

In the changing landscape of health care and health care organizations, clinicians are being asked to step into leadership roles, be solution-focused and develop highly effective health care teams. These opportunities require additional knowledge and skills beyond clinical expertise. With this increased complexity, the ability to be a leader is more important than ever. Professional knowledge and skills, relational abilities, and contextual understanding are three elements of strong leaders on the health care team.

The Montana Medical Association Healthcare Excellence in Leadership Program brings physicians and health care professionals from across Montana together for seven sessions to learn how they can lead, inspire, and influence real change. This in-depth course is designed to enhance the leadership skills of health care providers, so you can play a larger role in your practices and attain the knowledge and opportunities necessary to influence Montana health care policy.
