The course has given us an opportunity to learn about medicine from a completely different perspective
Berkeley Heights, NJ (Vocus) March 17, 2010
Summit Medical Group is participating in a Strategic Leadership Development program for its current and potential physician leaders. The 10-session program of New York University’s Stern School of Business, was customized for the Group and features provocative discussion on a wide variety of topics, including healthcare economics and strategy, ethics and professional responsibility, change management, finance for medical executives, healthcare reform and others. Program participants include SMG board members and a few management team members, representing a cross-section of Group service areas.
"The course has given us an opportunity to learn about medicine from a completely different perspective," says Richard O. Nelson, M.D., SMG board member and program participant. "It is teaching us how to better manage our organization, deal with the ever-changing landscape of healthcare and will ultimately help us provide better, more efficient care to our patients."
The sessions are held approximately once a month and alternate between SMG headquarters in New Jersey and the NYU campus. Summit Medical Group is just one of a select few healthcare organizations participating in the leadership development program.
