Physician Leadership Symposium

2020 Physician Leadership Symposium Online Webinars

A past Physician Leadership Symposium.

Held every April, the Physician Leadership Symposium provides opportunities for physicians to network with colleagues from all graduated PEMBA classes, current PEMBA students and faculty members. The event's focus changes each year based on latest research, and the college sponsors the symposium as a service to its PEMBA alumni and students, without charge, as part of our lifetime of learning promise.

Participants have opportunities to network with other physician leaders, build knowledge, meet with industry-leading employers and recruiters, and gain insight into ways of succeeding in the broader healthcare industry.

Registration is complimentary and includes session materials, breakfast and lunch, a shuttle, CEU’s and proceedings.

2020 Physician Leadership Symposium Online Webinars 

Although our on-campus sessions were canceled in recognition of the on-going global concern surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Physician Executive MBA Program at the University of Tennessee's Haslam College of Business is happy to announce online webinars.  Please join us for these upcoming webinars. Each session is led by an accomplished Physician Leader. The topics cover a wide-range of the latest thinking and the most practical approaches to the issues Physician Leaders face. There is no charge, but we do ask that everyone register. Can't attend the live seminar? Not to worry, once registered, we'll send you a link to the recording.
