Johns Hopkins Medicine CME: Leadership and Management for Physicians

(This activity has been approved for 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™  )


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 physicians are leaders in the workplace of 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 impact on your ability as a physician and eventually affect the quality, safety and cost of the care you deliver to your patients.  Would you like to become a better leader?

Target Audience

This online course has been prepared for any individual who works as a healthcare provider.  There are no prerequisites to participate.
