Learn the Art of Physician Leadership

The FMA is now accepting applications for the 2023-2024 Karl M. Altenburger, MD Physician Leadership Academy, our premier professional development program beginning in October 2023. Exclusively for FMA members, this intensive, 10-month program helps emerging physician leaders develop specific non-clinical skills they need to be effective advocates for the medical profession and their patients: emotional intelligence, conflict management, strategic leadership, persuasive communication, and building a healthy workplace culture.

Generously funded by the Physicians Foundation, Professionals Resource Network, and the FMA's Foundation for Healthy Floridians, the Academy combines daylong, in-person sessions with virtual learning activities throughout the year.
