About the Academy

Who it’s for

The Leadership Academy is an intensive, 10-month program aimed primarily at FMA physician members early and midcareer, who are selected annually through an application process. Participants come from a variety of specialties and practice environments but have the common objective of becoming effective advocates for the medical profession and patients.

Tools for success

Whether the goal is to make a difference within medical staffs, group practices, organized medicine, business or the public policy arena, the Leadership Academy equips physicians with practical tools for success. The University of Florida Leadership Development Institute has created a curriculum covering five key areas:

  • Leading Through Influence and Change
  • Innovation and Strategy
  • Building Culture and Talent
  • Cultivating Emotional Intelligence
  • Developing Professional Presence

The Karl M. Altenburger, M.D. FMA Physician Leadership Academy is made possible by a generous grant from The Physicians Foundation.
