The WSMA Effective Board Governance Course is a full-day seminar,
providing in-depth education about governance - what it is, what boards
do, why they exist and how you can be an effective participant.
Now more than ever, physicians are being asked to serve on the board of
their clinic, medical group, or integrated system. But to be an effective
board member it is important to understand the difference between a
constituency-based board and a representative board, what's expected of
you in terms of fiduciary responsibility, who you are expected to
represent, and how to be effective in communicating as a board member.
Equipped with this knowledge, physicians can be even stronger leaders and
bring a powerful voice and perspective to any board.
