The goals of the program are to enable physicians to lead in the delivery of exceptional health care, and to develop a talent pipeline of physician leaders. The combination of a formal base curriculum, social engagement, and coaching/ mentorship provides a framework for the program.
Residents involved with this program can conveniently attend most of the large group sessions remotely from the Turley Family Health Center, and the live sessions at the main BayCare office allow residents to interact with a variety of different specialists and providers at different stages of their careers within the BayCare system. Participants also are able to get individualized coaching based on formal assessments such as the DISC personality test, the Conflict Dynamics Profile, the Influence Style Indicator, and others.
Every two months resident participants also meet with the resident leadership program’s Director Dr. Wanda Cruz-Knight, and the Co-Director Dr. Julia Jenkins, to review and discuss a book relevant to physician-leaders. Residents feel this is one of the most valuable parts of the program, as it involves small group discussion about a variety of topics meant to foster individual introspection and growth.
