Course Director: Richard Winters, MD, MBA, Medical Director, Professional Leadership Development, Provider Relations

October 26 - 27, 2020 - Mayo Clinic - Rochester, Minnesota

As a trustee of the Board, you experience the volatile, uncertain and complex nature of health care. As you reflect upon your own experience and track record of effectiveness, questions arise:

  • How do I best translate my experience to improve the care of patients?
  • How do I best advocate for clear strategy and success?
  • How do I best support our leadership team?

At Mayo Clinic, strategy is set by the Board of Trustees. This strategy is set in motion by the Chief Executive Officer and the 65,000 employees he or she serves. There is one overriding mission: the needs of our patients come first.

A key to the success of Mayo Clinic is the ability to collaborate across multiple areas of expertise to harness broader perspectives to make informed, difficult decisions. Physician, nursing and administrative leaders work together as leadership triads to balance the strengths of tradition with bold and forward thinking.

During our program together, you will collaborate and network with colleagues from all over the world.
