Attendees of Sleep Medicine Trends 2019, Feb. 15 – 17, have a unique opportunity to register for an add-on course about physician leadership on Thursday, Feb. 14. Professor Jay Conger of the Center for Effective Organizations at USC’s Marshall School of Business, a TEDx speaker and author of multiple leadership books, has created a course specifically for physicians:  “Physician Leadership: What it Takes to be a More Influential You.”

The course will comprise the following sessions:

  • Why should anyone be led by you?
  • Your sources of influence: How well do you leverage them?
  • Leading teams: The leader’s essential job
  • Make your messages memorable: Tools to enhance the impact of your communications

Clinical excellence requires more than a medical skill set. Evidence shows that strong physician leadership can make a significant difference in health care outcomes, experiences, and financial sustainability. Don’t take it from us; read, “Why Doctors Need Leadership Training,” published in the October 2018 issue of the Harvard Business Review.

Join the AASM this February in Anaheim, California. Register today for Sleep Medicine Trends 2019 and register for the physician leadership add-on course.
