The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), Little Rock, AR has selected Xavier Leadership Center (XLC) as its partner to facilitate a series of leadership development courses for Integrated Clinical Enterprise physicians, nurses, administrators and other leaders. This program focuses on leadership skills needed to fully leverage an integrated care model.
“UAMS is dedicated to assisting physicians, staff, key service line leaders and organizational administrators in developing and exceling in these skills which are necessary for success,” said Roxane A. Townsend, MD, Vice Chancellor-Clinical Programs, CEO, UAMS Medical Center. “We continuously strive to create a fulfilling work environment for staff and safe, effective patient- and family-centered care for those we serve.”
“XLC is the right partner for UAMS because of our learning model and the expertise of our faculty and team. It is the perfect program for UAMS because of XLC’s prior experience in health care leadership and talent development, including academic medical centers and our industry recognized certificate program,” said Bruce Miller, Director of Xavier Leadership Center, Xavier University.
The learning model Miller is referring to is XLC’s 3-Dimensional Learning Model, which creates deep change in individuals and organizations by connecting their learning with what they think, feel and do. Transformational learning—the kind of learning that results in deep change—happens when people are engaged in multiple dimensions.
“Xavier Leadership Center has experienced training leaders relevant in today’s health care environment, thereby equipping them with the skills needed to successfully navigate in the ever-changing world we work in today. Because of this, XLC is able to customize a program that specifically meets our needs and organizational culture,” said Laura Tyler, Ph.D., Executive Divisional Director, UAMS Medical Center.
XLC will deliver a program combining leadership immersion experiences with sessions facilitated by consultants with unparalleled depth of experience and expertise. The initial cohort will begin the program in early April and wrap up in June. Two additional cohorts are planned for fall 2016 and spring of 2017.
