    Clinicians will work in small groups to complete a Group Action Learning Project, which focuses on relevant topics to their practice which will require participants to implement innovative thinking and solutions to improve their clinical practices. The projects are designed to allow healthcare professionals to apply the learning from the program directly back to their business to take their practice to the next level and accelerate growth.

    Clinicians will receive group coaching as part of the Integrated Strategy Group Project to develop the project and finalize project recommendations and the presentation to guest adjudicators.

    Sample group project topics include:

    • Optimizing marketing and branding strategies at a clinical practice
    • Leveraging disruptive technology or operations streamlining to improve business and bottom-line results
    • Implementing effective Human Resources techniques and approaches to strengthen recruiting, training and retention of office and clinical staff talent
