A California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) article featuring Geoffrey Leung, MD, EdM, describes the transformative experience he's had with our CHCF Health Care Leadership Program.
An ambulatory medical director and chief of family medicine at Riverside University Health System, Dr. Leung was at risk for professional burnout when he applied for the program two years ago. He gained "a renewed sense of mission, purpose, and gratitude from both a professional standpoint and a personal standpoint," he said.
"We often place accountability and blame on everything and everyone around us," Leung said. "The CHCF program helps us rebalance that perspective and realize what we do, how we behave, how we see ourselves in relation to the world — all are major determinants of our own success and how we impact people. In order to do transformational work, many of us have to first undergo an inner transformation."
The CHCF Health Care Leadership Program transforms today's clinicians into tomorrow's leaders. Up to 32 physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and other health care professionals are selected annually for this two-year, part-time fellowship. Fellows broaden their management skills and sharpen their leadership capacity while gaining insights into the trends and challenges facing health care in California.
Applications for the next cohort are due Friday, June 24, 2016.
