Physicians spent much of their time in classrooms working on leadership competencies. But there was plenty of time to interact and exchange information with peers. 

Hundreds of physician leaders traveled to Arizona to participate in education and networking opportunities during the American Association for Physician Leadership’s 2017 Fall Institute, Nov. 3-7.

Physicians spent time in classrooms working on leadership competencies, but there was plenty of time to interact and exchange information with peers. The five-day gathering at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale included a wine tasting, a yoga class, as well as a reception and luncheon and more.

In addition, more than 30 people took part in the first Beyond Burnout & Resilience symposium. Participants focused on “healing the healers,” developing long-term solutions to physician burnout and beginning a social movement for physician wellness. Attendees spent time outside the classroom, experiencing the desert up close.

Planning ahead? The association’s 2018 Winter Institute is scheduled for Jan. 25-28 in Orlando, Florida.
