Vishwas Physician Leadership Program

 

Who is a Physician Leader?

A Physician Leader is not an ordinary physician, but one who poses these three unique traits - capacity to 'Think Systemic', 'Feel Empathetic', and 'Act Proactive'. Physician leaders are role models for the community. They occupy themselves with not merely with treating illnesses, but they work towards creating health communities by targeting the social determinants of health.

Why do we need Physician Leadership?

The healthcare problems we face in the 21st century are complex, and solving them requires an interdisciplinary approach. The doctor of the new age needs to be well trained  in medicine, art, humanities, social sciences, technology and business. The doctor needs to possess skills normally not taught in medical school. Physician Leadership prepare a doctor to be a community steward and an agent of social change.   -

The Vishwas Physician Leadership Program is an experiential learning program where a physician is acquainted with subjects not usually taught in medical school - namely,

  • health psychology
  • health promotion programming
  • motivational counselling
  • health communication
  • health information technology
  • health economics and policy
  • public speaking
  • community mobilization
  • leadership.

What benefits will I get if I am selected for the program?

Program fellows will be trained over a period of 6 weeks and prepared to be Physician Leaders. Each fellow will be provided with a tablet loaded with the Vishwas Intelligent Physician Assistant, and a host of other tools and resources that will enable the doctors to transform their practice. By adopting the Vishwas model, the Physician Leaders will be able to earn more while working less, be more efficient, achieve greater work-life balance, and most importantly have a greater social impact.

How come the program is free? How can you afford it?

Vishwas is a social enterprise, and our goal is to promote the ideal of family medicine. Primary care and family medicine is on a decline and more young doctors need to be encouraged to establish their own clinics, and practising physicians need tools to transform their practice. Hence Vishwas has come up with a model where a corporate sponsor will be covering the cost of the training program by way of a CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiative .
