Enrollment is now under way for the Hanley Center's sixth cohort of its Physician Executive Leadership Institute - The Advanced Course.

Physicians enrolling in the course are designated as McAfee Fellows, in honor of former AMA and MMA President Robert McAfee, M.D. Participants gain knowledge, skills and tools in the core competency areas of: systems awareness; strategic focus; key management/business skills; self-awareness; healthcare trends; and teamwork and collaboration, best enabling them to lead and transform our healthcare delivery system.

Over the past 7 years, more than 150 physicians have participated in the Advanced Course. The sixth class will begin March 2019 at the Brunswick Hotel & Tavern in Brunswick and continue through January 2020. There are six two-day sessions, each running from Thursday evening through late Saturday morning. The class is expected to include 35 physician leaders from Maine, New Hampshire, and beyond. 

A distinguished five-member faculty team from the Heller School at Brandeis University delivers much of the program content for the Advanced Course, joining with Maine-based subject matter experts and physician leaders.  McAfee Fellows receive 80 hours of Category One CME for their participation in the full program.

Deadline for enrollments: January 30, 2019
