Join us to become a part of ASCENT Collaborative Physician Leadership


ASCENT – invigorating, collaborative, continuous

ASCENT is invigorating. Designed by physicians for physicians, ASCENT isn’t a mass-produced leadership program that follows a prescribed curriculum. Rather, our curriculum development is and will continue to be based on what is needed for today’s physician leaders. Following a path of three focus areas: culture of change, business of medicine and personal leadership, ASCENT will provide content and curriculum that adjusts to learner needs in today’s environment.

ASCENT is collaborative. Learning from each other will be a key component to the success of ASCENT Physician Leadership. The physician facilitators, the peer group structure, and the participant leaders will share and challenge each other. Combining the best in education with a proven peer-group structure, you will work throughout the year with your peer group and a trained facilitator. Peer groups provide a circle of trust, commitment, accountability, lifelong relationships, and resources that wouldn’t be found alone.

ASCENT is continuous. Embracing lifelong learning, ASCENT recognizes that physicians are all master learners, constantly exploring new research, evidence, and processes to take better care of their patients. ASCENT Physician Leadership builds upon that desire to continually grow and learn as a physician. Assess your own leadership skills and create your individual development path. Your peer group and other physician leaders will provide resources, training, and feedback so that you can effectively lead your organization to drive high value healthcare.

Peer Groups
ASCENT combines the best in education with a proven peer-group structure. Physician leaders, in peer groups of 7 – 10 physicians, will meet for three live meetings and nine accompanying peer coaching calls over a 12 month period. Trained physician facilitators will guide each group through their ongoing journey of personal and professional leadership development. Facilitators and physician leaders will jointly drive the development of the ongoing agenda to best support each peer group.

Registration for ASCENT is based on a one-year commitment covering attendance at three live meetings and nine additional monthly coaching calls. Registration fees include: individual and practice assessments, keynotes, education sessions, CME, peer group development, facilitated discussion and support, team events and more.
