How the program works
The approach is instructive and interactive. Participants
attend five in-person, eight-hour educational sessions that are led by
nationally recognized experts and personnel from the University of
Florida. The Foundation for Healthy Floridians covers the cost of
materials, speaker fees, lodging and sponsored meal expenses.
Young physicians are vital to organized medicine, and the Leadership
Academy provides a pathway for them to shape the future. Nearly half
(48.5 percent) of the program’s graduates so far have served or
currently serve on FMA councils and committees.
The Karl M. Altenburger, M.D. Physician Leadership Academy is made possible by a generous grant from The Physicians Foundation
