The Levinson Institute new9



The enduring principles about human behavior taught at Leadership for Physician Executives help physicians find solid, specific solutions to some of their most troubling work-related problems.

In this seminar, participants learn to read people situations more accurately.  They become skilled at harnessing the intrinsic motivation and enthusiasm of their teams.

They learn how to capture the frenetic energy released during organizational change and convert it into efficiency, productivity, and new opportunities.

Participants prepare and present a short real-life case, which is explored in faculty-led groups of six or seven physicians, applying a powerful diagnostic, problem-solving model.

Because experienced physicians and clinicians lead the groups, the small-group case discussion sessions are extremely powerful learning forums.

Co-sponsored by Harvard Medical School’s Department of Continuing Education and The Levinson Institute, this seminar has helped over 2,500 physicians worldwide to succeed in challenging leadership roles since 1984.

Key Concepts

  • Greater understanding of yourself, the people you lead and work with
  • Knowledge to lead and influence people—physicians and non-physicians—more effectively
  • Solid understanding of how to take charge and lead change in healthcare environments where physician leaders have limited authority
  • Skills in becoming a performance-driven, value-adding, and accountable physician-leader


Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians.

The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 44.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 44.75 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.


You should take great pride in the fact that 100% of the attendees who responded noted the course as being above average or superior to other similar postgraduate courses they have attended.  This is a stellar accomplishment and undoubtedly reflects your passion for teaching and mentoring.  I applaud your unswerving dedication and commitment to excellence.
