Carilion Physician Leadership Academy Graduates First Class

Doctors already Making an Impact on Health Care in the Region

Last week, 22 Carilion Clinic physicians graduated from our first Physician Leadership Academy.

The Academy is a 10 month program aimed at helping doctors develop leadership skills as Carilion continues transforming itself into a physician-led organization. Areas of study include; the business of medicine, applied finance, using technology to lead, business planning and mentoring.
Each doctor develops and implements a project as part of the program.

On Sunday, March 8, the Roanoke Times published a feature article about the Academy, and profiled some of the graduates and their projects, including Dr. Amanda Murchison and her Hispanic OB Clinic, and Dr's Tony Stavola and Michael Jeremiah, who developed a program to proactively improve the health of asthma patients using the Clinic's new electronic medical record.
The Academy is expanding as it begins its second year, offering classes to physicians in Roanoke and the New River Valley.
