The Boot Camp is designed to meet the needs of new physician leaders with little previous exposure to organizational leadership issues. Through years of research pressure-tested with CEOs, CMOs, and current and emerging physician leaders at over 50 institutions, we’ve found that as physicians move into leadership roles, they find themselves without the necessary tools and tactics to navigate them. Strong physician leadership is even more critical in the era in which an organization's working relationships with its physician leaders, including the collaboration between clinical and administrative leaders, are increasingly used in evaluation. Recognizing that leadership skills are honed over time with practice and repetition, the Boot Camp is a terrific way to start the process and to identify those physicians who are truly committed to leadership roles.
 Orienting physicians to the health system organization and its often perplexing dynamics—i.e., who makes what decisions
 Exposing participants to basic health system economics and to the ways in which physician decisions impact performance—i.e., how cash flows and why
 Demonstrating the benefits of collaboration and how to manage and navigate groups effectively to achieve optimal results—i.e., setting agendas, working with interdisciplinary groups, and managing meeting time
 Heightening awareness of communication challenges and their impact—i.e., how perceptions impact results
 Framing and articulating an appropriate physician leadership agenda—i.e., goals and objectives for the first 100 days to manage talent, instill accountability, and elevate the practice standard
