Ascent Physician Leadership Base Camp live meetings, Summit virtual meetings and peer group coaching calls will challenge, energize and support your leadership path forward. The Base Camp meeting format includes invigorating speakers in large group sessions for all ASCENT attendees, as well as engaging time spent working in a peer group of 6 to 10 physician leaders. At Summit, ASCENT will tackle a focused topic over a two hour virtual meeting that includes breakout sessions to keep all trekkers engaged in the learning and share.  With ASCENT you will grow together as you tackle today’s and tomorrow’s healthcare challenges.

“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure some of them are dirt.”

-John Muir

The ASCENT program is going to apply Muir’s advice to physician leadership, and challenge you to travel some new, less-trodden paths.

Along the way, we will gather, survey conditions to expect on your leadership journey, organize your thoughts and team, and develop your plan for a successful adventure. Each ASCENT adventure will focus on a new challenge.

With both ASCENT Summit and Base Camp, you will learn from inspiring Adventurers and seasoned Rangers, from within and beyond healthcare.

ASCENT Summit is our new offering of virtual meetings. Recognizing the need to offer leadership resources and tools at a time when it is needed most, Summit will serve as a safe place to learn and share with other physician leaders. 

Healthcare is undergoing substantial business transformation. The Business of Medicine Base Camp addresses the impact on your organization, using data driven exercises to simulate financial impacts.

The Personal Leadership Base Camp explores your leadership skills and how you can optimize your strengths for continued personal and professional growth and development.

You will not journey alone.  You will join fellow physician leader trekkers and together you will challenge each other, grow, and hold one another accountable to your professional and personal journey. Your ASCENT trek guides will ensure that you have the tools you need to be successful.
