The Wyoming Medical Society has received a $150,000 grant from The Physicians Foundation to fund a leadership program for Wyoming physicians. The program will allow a cohort of 15 Wyoming physicians to take part in the program each year. The inaugural program started in October of 2017 and the third class will kick-off in September of this year in Jackson Hole, WY.
The program is broken up into seven two-day sessions which will be delivered in various locations around the state to allow for observation and debate on healthcare delivery models and public policy. The weekend will be broken into time spent touring and discussing specific healthcare topics with state subject matter experts as well as taking part in leadership modules.
In developing the program, The Wyoming Medical Society partnered with Leadership Wyoming, The University of Wyoming School of Health and Sciences, WWAMI, and The Wyoming Hospital Association.
The Wyoming Medical Society has contracted with FutureSync, International, a Montana firm which was key in the development of the Montana Medical Association’s successful physician leadership program. FutureSync, with direction from the program’s Advisory Council, will develop modules to provide physicians with the tools, skills, and learning opportunities to engage effectively to influence the future of healthcare.
