What you need to know

Congratulations to the Hackensack Meridian Health Medical Group physicians who completed the Hackensack Meridian Health Physician Leadership Academy 1.0 and 2.0 programs offered through Organizational Effectiveness.

The Physician Leadership Academy programs are designed to provide physicians with the opportunity to improve their leadership skills through online course work and interactive course work with Steve Adubato’ s Stand & Deliver leadership program.

This year the program graduated a total of 30 physicians from our 1.0 course (included employed and independent) and 13 from the 2.0 course.

Details about Physician Leadership Academy

Physicians are nominated to participate in the Physician Leadership Academy by an HMH Executive Leader. The network’s Talent Management Council reviews the nominees and selects final candidates.

The goal of the Physician Leadership Academy is to create a pipeline of physician leaders who are focused on not only the importance of strengthening the quality of patient care throughout the network, but who also lead the way to HMH maximizing productivity, effectiveness and efficiency. It also focuses on the role each physician leader plays in continuing to move the organization forward.
