Applications are open for the 2025 class of the Karl M. Altenburger, MD Physician Leadership Academy, our premier professional development program. Exclusively for FMA members, the Leadership Academy is an intensive, 11-month program that helps emerging physician leaders develop specific non-clinical skills they need to be effective advocates for the medical profession and their patients.  

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.
