2018 / 2019 ACG Young Physician Leadership Scholars and ACG Leadership on Capitol Hill.

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.
