Leading Transformation in the 21st Century
for Women's Healthcare

Next ACOG
Leadership Institute
March 26-30, 2014

Talented OB-GYNs are needed to create the future for American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and its 46,000 OB-GYN members. However, leading a transformation in women's healthcare requires more than a thorough knowledge of medicine and a honed bedside manner. It requires an understanding of transformation and change in the context of understanding oneself and others. Physicians who will be leaders need to understand the critical issues of cost-effective care and using epidemiological evidence to guide policy recommendations. Physician leaders must negotiate in these challenging economic times and increasingly physicians who are leaders are looked to as translators of complex scientific medical findings into simple, understandable language for the media as well as other physicians.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists ACOG Leadership Institute is designed to give high potential OB-GYNs the tools to accomplish the goal of Leading Transformation in the 21st Century for Women's Healthcare. Through a series of workshops with highly recognized physicians, lawyers, journalists, and leadership experts employing cutting edge leadership assessment instruments, this intensive Thursday-Sunday program "tools up" physicians with non-traditional skills.
