IMQ/PACE Platinum Training Program for Physician Leaders

The Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) and UC San Diego Physician Assessment and Clinical Education (PACE) Program, with strong support and encouragement from The Physicians Foundation, responded by developing “Stepping Up to Leadership - the IMQ/PACE Platinum Training Program for Physician Leaders.” This physician friendly program provides the tools and knowledge physicians need to succeed in leadership roles. The IMQ/PACE course combines IMQ’s expertise in medical staff matters with PACE’s expertise in communication and assessment. It integrates didactic presentations with video vignettes, role playing exercises, and other interactive modes to create an effective learning environment. For this year’s program, we have developed new videos, and have expanded discussions to address workplace violence, preventing and treating physician burn-out, aging physician policies, and recent legal and regulatory changes.
