Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership’s Renowned Physician Executive Leadership Institute – The Advanced Course 

ONLY A DOZEN SPOTS LEFT for Cohort VII Commencing September 2021. Enroll today and strengthen and extend your leadership skills by learning about the key intersections in the science of management and the business of medicine. Network enabling, the rare opportunity for self-reflective time and space, and rebuilding your resiliency and passion for your medical career are key to the full course experience. 

Enrollment is now open! Be sure to save your seat in the next cohort as we will only accept the first 35 physician enrollments! And this course will not again until 2023! 

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's 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.” 

Over the past 9 years, nearly 200 physicians have participated in the Advanced Course. Our 7th cohort will begin September 23, 2021 and continue through June 4, 2022.  There are six two-day sessions, each running from Thursday evening through late Saturday morning. The Hanley Center is planning for the class to include 30-35 physician leaders. 

A distinguished five-member faculty team from the Heller School for Social Policy & Management 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.
