Where Healthcare Professionals Come to Learn
Leading begins with you. Your self-awareness offers the foundation for how you lead others. Through assessment and reflection you will learn who you are as a leader.
VISTA focuses on developing and applying personal and organizational leadership skills to address the complex problems of today’s health care environment. The goal is to enhance the leadership skills of our learners, so they are more successful in their roles and better able to improve organizational performance.
IPMA offers two versions of VISTA to meet your needs:
VISTA Partnership is a 6-month program, designed for organizational cohorts. This program is designed for organizations that already have teams available to participate. The curriculum is developed to have learners meet twice for in-person peer-to-peer learning and activities. (see below for more information)
VISTA Independent is a 14-week program, designed for individual participants who are looking for a cohort to learn and study with. This program is designed to meet three times via Zoom and one time in-person to develop a cohort that you as an individual can learn from and grow with during your leadership journey. The 2023 program begins September 5, 2023, so register today. Registration closes MONDAY, JULY 31, 2023. (for more information click here)

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.
