Bay Area Physician Leadership Program (ACCMA)

Today’s dynamic health care environment requires physicians to be effective leaders to ensure organizational and individual success. The Physician Leadership Program addresses the fact that physicians are, and should be, placed in roles with organizational responsibility, but have limited formal opportunities to learn the concepts, skills, and tools of leadership. This program allows physicians to build upon their clinical leadership experience by honing skills like communicating a vision, motivating colleagues, negotiating with payers, and collaborating across silos in order to build organizations, compete for resources, lead change, influence policy and overcome challenges.
ACCMA offers members full scholarships to attend.

For information or questions, contact Jenn Mullins, Associate Director of Education and Events at or 510-654-5383.
The Physician Leadership Program kicks off in January 2024 with an in-person session in Oakland, followed by four 2-hour virtual sessions led by nationally recognized faculty. Concluding the program, we will reconvene in Oakland for one final in-person session. In addition to these plenary sessions, Dr. Hilary Worthen, Course Director, will offer a one-on-one consultation for each participant to focus on their personal leadership goals. The program is sequenced and scheduled to accommodate busy physicians. Participants can earn a certificate of completion and up to 24 hours of category 1 CME credit.

Applications for 2024 cohort are currently closed. If you are interested in being a future participant, please contact the ACCMA at 510-654-5383.
