IPMA is Where Healthcare Professionals Come to Learn
Leading begins with you. Your self-awareness offers the foundation for how you lead others. Through assessment, education and reflection you will learn who you are as a leader.
VISTA Physician Leadership and Healthcare Leadership programs focus on developing and applying personal and organizational skills to address the complex problems of today’s healthcare environment. The goal is to enhance the leadership skills of our physician learners, so they are more successful in their roles and better able to improve organizational performance.

Leading healthcare organizations have found great value in assigning physicians to help lead on strategically important initiatives including:
Success in these areas and others requires foundational personal leadership skills and expertise.
