1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST (each day)
The Leadership Capstone course is going virtual! Take your leadership skills to the next level by joining your peers for the Virtual Leadership Capstone course taking place on April 5-7, 2021. This course includes a three-day virtual program, plus an ongoing six-month learning component that allows participants to continue developing leadership skills throughout the coming year. With the completion of Capstone, participants are eligible to earn a Certificate of Leadership in Hospital Medicine (CLHM) Designation.
Please note, participants must have attended at least one previous Leadership Academy course to participate in the Virtual Capstone program.
Three-Day Virtual Course
The Leadership Capstone program is recommended for hospitalists with three or more years of experience, who are already leading or preparing to lead an academic, business, or clinical change initiative at their institution. The course incorporates new didactic content and facilitated workshops.
Participants will have the opportunity to practice skills through role-playing, improve their personal and professional plans and will leave the three-day course with an assigned “learning pod” – a group of peers plus a coach – to continue learning for six months following the program.
Official course agenda to come!
Six Facilitated Pod Calls
Once a month, a check-in via video call will take place and include structured discussions, opportunities to share challenges and/or lessons learned as well as additional content on universal topics like total life-work integration – a leadership community of practice.
For the 2021 participants, calls will occur from May 2021 through October 2021. To provide you with as much flexibility as possible, the exact days and times will be scheduled by you and your pod members on the last day of the virtual course.
Certificate of Leadership in Hospital Medicine
The Certificate of Leadership in Hospital Medicine (CLHM) cultivates leadership skills in the context of specific hospital medicine challenges. Participants develop a professional portfolio that showcases their ability to plan, execute and evaluate initiatives that strengthen hospital medicine programs. This designation informs employers – or potential employers – with confidence that a candidate is equipped and ready to lead teams and grow the organization.
To become eligible for the optional CLHM designation, Leadership Capstone participants must:
- Attend the on-site kick-off plus at least four of six pod calls during the Capstone program.
- Complete at least two additional SHM Leadership Academy courses.
- Submit a structured final report, to be approved by the course director.
Once you have completed your coursework, there is no additional fee to submit your CLHM Final Report and apply for the designation.
