Applications for 2018-19 NMA Leadership Academy now being accepted!

February 13, 2018

The first NMA Leadership Academy is coming to a close, which means it's time to accept applications for the second group of future leaders in medicine.

The Leadership Academy was made possible by a generous grant from the Physicians Foundation to the Nebraska Medical Foundation.

Current participants had the following to say about their experience:

“Leadership is full of nuances. To become an effective leader there are going to be challenges. Being part of the Leadership Academy taught by Pam Alfrey Hernandez has provided an avenue to express the challenges and explore ways in which to meet and overcome them. I have learned about myself and my natural tendencies as well as which of those may be more or less helpful. We have also spent time talking about moving towards a vision, building trust and how to have honest and sometimes difficult conversations. The topics have been valuable as well as pertinent to our lives. One of the things that have been most helpful to me is talking through current real-life situations. It allows us to take the topics we are learning and directly apply them to situations with which we are faced. I feel like the time has been well spent and contains information that I use throughout my career.”

Chief of OB/GYN
St. Elizabeth’s Hospital
“The Physician Leadership Academy offers an opportunity for professional development unparalleled by any leadership program in which I've participated before. The unique methodology of the Leadership Circle has helped me gain a newfound understanding of where my leadership strengths lie. When added to Pam Alfrey Hernandez's compassionate and direct coaching style, I have learned how to hone and harness these strengths to effectively advance my professional and personal goals. Aside from all this, though, the frank openness and resultant camaraderie with my physician peers has been the most meaningful part of this experience. These deep connections are something that transcend professional development and are a reflection of the program's genuine commitment to enhancing the physician community one colleague at a time. This program has truly been transformational for me, and I hope my peers will see the value of this amazing opportunity and rush to sign up!”
