This activity has been approved for 16.0  AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™*

“The information is practical and you present it in a way that makes it easier to apply to real life situations.”

“This course should be made a requirement for ALL academic physicians, fellows and residents. I wish i had learned this 20 years ago. My leadership journey would have been much smoother and I would have been a much better leader.”

“I knew very little of healthcare finances/budgeting and have a good foundation of knowledge now.”

“This was a good foundation for me to start thinking about leadership and working on defining my role as a leader in my daily practice.”

“For me the adage of “you don’t know what you don’t know” rang true. I don’t think most physicians realize how much they would benefit from learning what I just learned.”
