NCH offers Physician Leadership Development course

As Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) creates the platform for an integrated system of care, NCH is supporting the further development of physician leaders, both independent and employed, who will become partners in re-envisioning the way healthcare is delivered. Together, NCH and physician leaders will work in concert to optimize quality, outcomes, and the patient experience while lowering the cost of care delivery.

Course Offering
Effective Meetings, Leadership Skills and Communication Styles
Saturday, April 27, from 8 am 11:30 am at NCH.

Learn how to determine what topics should be discussed in meetings and what kinds of meetings to have and when. Participants also will learn the communication styles of others in order to influence them and how to remain calm and professional in emotionally charged situations.

To that end, NCH is pleased to offer a formal Physician Leadership Development program that will provide physicians in leadership roles with the knowledge and tools they need to function as high performing leaders in the community or in the NCH system.
