PELI Advanced Course: McAfee Fellows – Transforming Health & Healthcare
The Advanced Course, part of our Physician & Provider Executive Leadership Institute (PELI), is aimed at physician and provider leaders who have the experience, commitment, and passion to lead initiatives that will transform and improve health and healthcare systems at local, regional, and statewide levels.
This course was created to give clinicians the management and leadership skills they needed to transform health and healthcare in various settings. PELI Advance brings national caliber training and faculty to New England, specific to the needs of physicians and providers in the region.
We designate our PELI Advance graduates ‘McAfee Fellows’ in honor of the distinguished physician leader, Robert McAfee, a general and vascular surgeon, physician and advocate for the prevention of family violence and improved healthcare. He was the 149th President of the American Medical Association and Chairman of the Board of the Dirigo Health Plan. The PELI Advanced experience prepares physicians to tackle today’s healthcare challenges while strategizing to resolve tomorrow’s, following in Dr. McAfee’s footsteps.
This course is competency-based, highly experiential, and systems focused using an adult learning theory model. Participants attend a series of six, 2-day residential sessions over a 12-month period of time in order to provide participants with the opportunity to bring new learning to their work settings, share experiences, devote considerable time and thought to complex issues, and build and strengthen professional relationships and trust with colleagues.
The physicians and providers attending the advanced course will benefit from a long-standing and supportive network of physicians and advanced practice providers across the state.
