UCSF and IPC launch hospital medicine leadership fellowship

Hospitalist Leadership Connection, July 27, 2010

The physician group practice IPC Hospitalist Company and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Division of Hospital Medicine and its Center for Health Professions will develop a hospital medicine leadership fellowship, announced IPC on July 23 in a press release.

Geared for 40 of IPC’s clinicians, the program will incorporate core program seminars, executive coaching sessions, webinars, and on-site meetings on training topics such as core leadership skills, quality improvement, and patient safety.

One of the key features of the program is the quality/operational improvement project in which enrollees work with their own hospitals and UCSF mentors to select a key area for improvement and develop and implement an action plan.

“This partnership will help build a cadre of physician leaders. . .IPC employs more than 1,000 hospitalists at hundreds of hospitals around the U.S. so the impact of this program will be vast,” said Chief of UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine, Robert Wachter, MD, SFHM. “Creating a true collaboration between a private hospitalist enterprise and our academic programs is an exciting and inspiring challenge, and we at UCSF are totally committed to its success.”
