36 www.FLmedical.org FLORIDA MEDICAL MAGAZINE SPRING 2017 In successful physician leader- ship training programs, doctors learn some of the most valuable lessons from each other. North Carolina Medical Society Executive Vice President and CEO Robert Seligson has observed it time and time again: When physicians of diff erent backgrounds are in a room together, away from their day to day work environments, they can have open, honest discussions that lead to solutions. Seligson is also Treasurer and Finance Committee Chair for of the Physicians Foundation, which has provided generous grant funding to help establish such pro- grams nationwide, including the FMA's Karl M. Altenburger, M.D. (KMA) Physician Leadership Academy. " ey've got their hair down and they can talk to their colleagues who have experienced similar challenges; sharing war stories, if you will. Helping each other solve problems," Seligson said. " ey're in a group of people who have the same goal, which is to learn how to be a leader." To date, the Physicians Foundation has awarded 89 grants totaling $9,739,495 toward supporting physician leadership programs across the country. For Seligson, the subject of physician leadership development "is near and dear to my heart." And leadership training programs tailor-made for physicians are gaining traction as medical organizations seek to equip doctors for today's more intricate and quickly fl uctuating health care environment. Filling the Pipeline The Physicians Foundation is investing in training leaders for 21 st Century medicine. By Erika D.
