The MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation selected 19 outstanding individuals for participation in the year-long Emerging Leaders program.  The Leaders were nominated from exemplary primary care practices across the US  and represent a diversity of clinical roles including physicians, nurses, medical assistants, and quality improvement profressionals.  Participants were selected based on their demonstrated commitment to quality and enthusiastic recommendations from their colleagues.

Emerging Leaders will receive leadership development training; participate in learning sessions with national experts in primary care; work in small teams to apply what they’re learning; and connect to innovators at the Institute for Health Care Improvement’s 15th Annual International Summit on Improving Patient Care in the Office Practice and Community in March 2014.

Sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Emerging Leaders program aims to cultivate the skills needed by individuals across the primary care practice to be effective leaders and drivers of change in their own organizations and communities.
