Enrollment is now under way for the Daniel Hanley Center’s sixth annual Physician Executive Leadership Institute—Advanced Course. Be sure to save your seat in the next cohort as we can only accept the first 35 physician enrollments! 

Physicians enrolling in the program are designated as McAfee Fellows, in honor of former AMA and MMA President Robert McAfee, MD. 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. 

Here is what a few recent McAfee Fellows have shared about their PELI Advanced experience: 

“I can tell you with great certainty that I feel a lot more confident about my group decision making, my influence on a group’s behavior and my strategic planning. My ability as a leader is significantly enhanced by the PELI program. That is a given.” 

“Having another avenue to apply my energies, new unchartered territory, it’s exciting in a different way and I think that gives satisfaction that mitigates against some burnout stuff that could potentially happen.” 

“It exposes participants to other leaders, ideas, approaches and efforts.” 

Here is what a few recent CEO’s have shared about the value of supporting their physicians in the Advanced Course: 

"Benefit to health system – implementation of a new medical staff meeting format that increased attendance and focused on provider wellness: reduced burnout; improved provider engagement.” 

“With more confidence in their skills: one physician is capably developing a new team-based model of care in his practice; several physicians have moved into leadership positions; one physician has become a mentor of physicians who need skill development.” 

Over the past 8 years, nearly 200 physicians have participated in the Advanced Course. Our 7th cohort will begin May 6, 2021 and continue through March 26, 2022.  There are six two-day residential sessions, each running from Thursday evening through late Saturday morning. The Hanley Center is planning for the class to include 30-35 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 course 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 course.
