The FMA’s Karl M. Altenburger, M.D. Physician Leadership Academy is aimed at identifying and training doctors in their 20s, 30s and 40s to become the next generation of physician leaders in Florida. Funded by the FMA Foundation for Healthy Floridians and a grant from the Physicians Foundation, the program launched in 2010 with 10 physician participants. More than 100 FMA members of all specialties and practice backgrounds have since graduated from the Academy.
Through sessions with nationally recognized experts and University of Florida Leadership Development Institute personnel, participants develop core skills physicians need to excel as leaders within medical staffs, group and corporate practices, organized medicine, and the public policy arena. The Leadership Academy is free for FMA member physicians who are accepted into program.
