The Wyoming Medical Society has received a $150,000 grant from the Physician Foundation to fund a leadership program for Wyoming physicians. The program will allow a cohort of between 15-and-20 Wyoming physicians to take part in the program each year. The inaugural program will get started in October of 2017.

The program will be 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 will partner with Leadership Wyoming, The University of Wyoming School of Health and Sciences, WWAMI, and The Wyoming Hospital Association who will join the program’s Advisory Council which will be made up predominantly of Wyoming physicians. The Advisory Committee of the program will be developing a selection committee over the coming months and, when finalized, will be sent to WMS member physicians.
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.
