Quality Leadership for Dentists 4.0 CME
This activity has been approved for 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
Course #1 The Business of Dentistry Program
The goal of this course is to improve your leadership, which will improve how you relate to those you work with as well as improve the outcomes of your patients. Contrary to common belief, good leadership is a learned quality. Character traits of charisma and personal magnetism are not the same as good leadership. All dentists are leaders in their practice. It doesn’t matter whether you are in academics, employed by a hospital, or in private practice, the fact is, you lead every day! Others look up to you and expect direction. The manner in which you provide leadership will eventually affect the quality, safety, and the cost of care you deliver to your patients. Quality leadership yields a profitable dental practice. This course will help you identify your present leadership style and show you how to improve using the concept of “Quality Leadership” that has proven so successful in the corporate world. We then introduce you to the tools you need as a leader in your dental practice to succeed. Finally, we will discuss adding a strategic planning and decision making component to your skill set to ensure that your practice remains competitive and sustainable.
The course is presented in 3 sections:
- Leadership and Management
- Tools of Leadership
- Strategy Planning and Decision Making
This course is accessible on any devise and on any network, enabling you to learn on your own time at any place of your choosing using the latest virtual classroom technology.
