The new Health Care Leadership and Management (HCLM) class of the North Carolina Medical Society’s (NCMS) Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership embarked on their year-long leadership and management training course last weekend. All 13 participants met at the Rizzo Center at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill for two days of education and inspiration.
The HCLM track within the Kanof Institute provides a critical framework for physicians based on economics, finance and leadership development. At the end of their year of training, graduates have the necessary vocabulary for the business realm and are equipped to take on greater leadership positions in their career.
This group’s first session began with a site visit to Duke Connected Care (DCC), an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) in Durham. DCC Executive Medical Director Dev Sangvai, MD, and Senior Medical Director Eugenie Komives, MD explained the physician-led model’s clinical programs and care management including pharmacy programs as well as data collection and analytic support.
On Saturday, the class heard the latest on Health Care Economics from Stuart Altman, PhD, MA, Sol C. Chaikin Professor of National Health Policy, Brandeis University.
Program co-chairs Dr. Sangvai and John Meier, MD, MBA along with NCMS CEO Robert W. Seligson offered remarks. Dr. Meier led several sessions throughout the weekend on finance accounting and corporate finance. Kanof Institute Director Kristina Natt och Dag presented on the topic “Leading Others – Increasing Personal Effectiveness as a Leader.”
