“Much of the growing emphasis on improving quality and increasing value depends on improved understanding, collaboration and coordination between physician leaders and healthcare executives, and our program will support those goals,” said Betsy Ryan, NJHA president and CEO. “Promoting the growth and development of the next generation of physician leaders is part of an ongoing emphasis for NJHA. Hospitals of the future must have a new level of physician leaders who are able to lead differently.”

According to The Leadership Development Group’s President and CEO Tracy Duberman, PhD, “APLA© brings together industry-renowned faculty, coupled with physician coaches, to work interactively with participants to enhance physician leadership competencies and strengthen individual, team and organization performance. We are thrilled to partner with NJHA and bring this program to their members where we will focus on all aspects of physician leadership including self-awareness and development as well as business acumen and systems thinking.”
