ACG Young Physician Leadership Scholars Program—Elevating Great Doctors into Great Leaders

The goal of the program is to provide young physicians with a comprehensive skill set that will serve as a foundation for the development of leadership and physician advocacy skills, with a focus on building aptitude in executive decision-making, critical thinking, and understanding organizational behavior.  By bringing motivated young physicians together for interactive discussions and a day of advocacy meetings on Capitol Hill, we hope to encourage the development of the next generation of leaders in gastroenterology.
