SCHA Launching New Resources for Physician Leadership

Don't delay and risk missing out on two terrific opportunities to help your physician leaders and practice managers develop the skills they will need to help you lead change.
 
In response to your requests, SCHA is offering two programs to help hospitals better align with physicians and physician practices. SCHA is partnering with the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) to offer the Physician Executive Leadership Institute (PELI) and the Medical University of South Carolina to offer the Medical Practice Management Certificate Program.
 
The Institute brings nationally renowned expertise to South Carolina, providing a program that has been customized to the needs of the physician leaders in South Carolina. Taking advantage of this opportunity will minimize travel costs and time away from the hospital, patients, and family. Plus, all courses qualify for CME credit. Participants in the Executive program will be eligible to apply for graduate credit and credit toward the ACPE certification.
 
To provide maximum flexibility so that all interested physicians may participate, the PELI offers three options for participation:

  • Executive: Enroll to participate in the full Institute; including 5 live sessions and 3 online sessions.
  • Preferred: Enroll to participate in the preferred package; including 2 live sessions and 1 online session.
  • Select: Enroll to participate in any of the 5 individual sessions.
