In addition to the restructuring of the clinical enterprise, academic centers are being challenged to sustain their academic missions and priorities in the face of resource constraints. In order to tackle these challenges, institutions need physicians in administrative positions at all levels who can provide leadership and thoughtful managerial initiatives. For over forty years Harvard has conducted intensive two-week executive development programs designed specifically for chairs, chiefs, and medical directors in clinical departments at major teaching hospitals. During that time, leaders from institutions in all regions of the United States have participated in and praised these unique educational programs. Leadership Development for Physicians in Academic Health Centers is designed to serve a wide array of physician leaders. It convenes medical directors and chiefs of divisions from academic health centers together with an interdisciplinary faculty team for two weeks of intensive and systematic study of the critical leadership and management issues faced by physicians in administrative positions and academic health centers. Program Objectives: The program’s overall objective is to enhance and develop participants’ leadership abilities and effectiveness. This is accomplished by providing: increased understanding of their responsibilities as leaders; perspective on the critical leadership and management issues they face; and understanding and awareness of concepts and techniques relevant to management. Upon Completion of the Program, Participants Will Have Gained: • Increased understanding of the responsibilities and tasks of leaders in complex institutions • Broader appreciation of the challenges and changes occurring in academic medical centers and the implications for their own institution and service or area of responsibility • New perspectives on issues they face currently and on those which arise in the future • Knowledge of relevant concepts and techniques in several key management disciplines • New methods to analyze problems and an enhanced capacity to identify the critical questions • Greater effectiveness as unit and institutional leaders in formulating and implementing initiatives and managing change

Description: Clinician’s often say to me: “I want to include to include Nutritional and Integrative Medicine methods into my practice but I am not sure where to begin or how to do this? And, “What am I allowed to do”? Many clients are already self-prescribing based on information obtained on the Internet or their friends. While many of these clinical methods have few negative side effects, some herbal supplements, juice fasts and other apparently healthy activities can have significant adverse outcomes if not tailored to the individual’s psychobiology.

You will also have opportunity to discuss cases, ask questions, develop new assessment skills and explore both metaphorical and scientific language that allows for effective communication with clients.
