There is a longstanding gap in the development and promotion of women as healthcare leaders. Although some gains have been made, reports generally demonstrate that the progress is slow and women continue to face many challenges in their careers that limit their ability to be promoted and then succeed in new leadership roles.

Developing leadership skills is an important aspect of career advancement; however, physicians and other healthcare professionals often do not receive formal training. Women lag behind men in leadership training, roles, and compensation. This course is designed to teach healthcare professionals what they themselves, or the people they manage or mentor, need in order to be successful now and in the future.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
• Identify your personal mission and goals to improve leadership skills
• Define different leadership styles and hone your own leadership style
• Develop a strategic plan with short-term and long-term goals that support your institution’s mission
• Identify ways to measure outcomes and evaluate your organization’s success in achieving goals
• Utilize management strategies to effectively lead your team
• Establish strategies for communicating with internal and external stakeholders
• Apply specific communication strategies for negotiating and conducting difficult conversations
• Practice specific skills and procedures related to advocacy and policy at the local, state, and national levels
