To succeed in today’s health system, radiology leaders must be equipped with business management skills to bridge the gap between clinical and hospital operations. Successful radiology leadership is a balance of interpersonal relationship building, financial management and operational strategy.
Our ability to bring the best of radiology to our patients and referrers is dependent upon our participation across a variety of organizational committees and partnership with a diversity of physician and non-physician leaders to convey our value ensuring investment in the necessary financial and human resources for success. We are also dependent upon coordinating operations within the radiology department to ensure high quality clinical service and a harmonious work environment.
If you’re ready to bridge the gap from the reading room to the board room and lead your team confidently, we invite you to attend the 2023 RLI Maximize Your Influence and Impact course. The course provides opportunities to explore and discuss complex healthcare management and leadership topics with experienced radiologist leaders across a dozen 90-minute interactive sessions. You will also gain tremendous insights through the experiences of other radiologists within the learning cohort who are grappling with similar issues within a broad spectrum of practice environments across the U.S. The virtual course begins January 19 and includes live sessions, Q&A and opportunities to interact 1:1 with the cohort and faculty.
