The Medical Staff, Credentialing and Peer Review (MSCPR) Practice Group is pleased to introduce its Leadership Development Program (LDP). The LDP provides MSCPR Practice Group members an opportunity to become more involved in the Practice Group’s leadership. Participants are selected via a call for participation, and are appointed to membership in the LDP for a term beginning in November and ending the following June. LDP members participate in Practice Group activities and have the opportunity to learn about the operations of AHLA and the Practice Group and to develop leadership skills through interaction and project participation. It is also a great way to meet people involved in the Practice Group and AHLA and to develop and strengthen relationships.
Each participant is assigned to a Vice Chair of the Practice Group for the length of their term. The LDP member will learn the positions and responsibilities of the Practice Group’s Vice Chairs and assist the vice chair that you are assigned to in completing that individual’s responsibilities to the Practice Group. As part of this process, LDP members participate in the monthly Practice Group leadership conference calls and become involved in ongoing projects. Program participants will have the opportunity to work on various MSCPR Practice Group projects throughout the term, including the following:
- Drafting and editing MSCPR Practice Group publications, membership recruitment materials, and other Practice Group communications;
- Preparing website improvements, and social media tools for MSCPR Practice Group membership;
- Participing in MSCPR work groups and Toolkits such as the Patient Safety Organizations Work Group and Toolkit, the Accountable Care Organization Ceredntialing Work Group and the National Practitioner Data Bank Guidebook Work Group; and
- Assisting in organizing and producing webinars.
Participation in the MSCPR Practice Group LDP is not required for future leadership in the Practice Group or AHLA, but it will be a great way to learn more about and to become involved in both the MSCPR Practice Group and AHLA. We encourage you to participate in one or more of the above projects even if you are not a part of the LDP.
Please note, members may only hold one role within the Practice Groups during a given program year. If you currently serve in a leadership role in a Practice Group, Task Force, Affinity Group, or Leadership Development Program, you will not be considered for this opportunity.
