Program Details


The Provider Leadership Academy program requires a year-long commitment as follows:

Monthly cohort sessions (2-3 hours/month)

  • Scheduled virtual sessions led by content experts from across CommonSpirit Health
  • Includes a variety of concept instructions, small group work, networking opportunities, and concept application

Pre- and post- session independent work (2-3 hours/month)

  • Completed at your convenience before and after the monthly sessions
  • Includes article reviews, assigned reading, and project work

In-person graduation ceremony (when possible, given COVID-19 consideration)

  • Our goal, if the travel restrictions permit and it can be done safely, will be to gather all participants for an in-person graduation ceremony. Travel costs will be covered by the academy (in accordance with current travel policies).

Virtual sessions

  • Participants are expected to attend all virtual sessions and the in-person graduation, but exceptions will be made for 1-2 absences for extenuating circumstances. Course work is expected to be completed if sessions are missed (virtual sessions will be recorded).

Application Process and Cost

To be considered, an applicant must be endorsed by an executive leader (e.g. a medical group CMO, a medical group VP of Operations, etc.). Please coordinate with your Physician Enterprise market leader to ensure you are supported in your interest in participation in this program and submit your application by January 31, 2021.

The Provider Leadership Academy is comprised of two (2) cohorts of 25 participants (50 total) from endorsed applicants. Final acceptance will be determined by the CommonSpirit Health National Provider Leadership Committee. Qualified candidates are admitted on a space-available basis. Due to overwhelming interest in this program, we anticipate more applicants than available spots. We will have a waitlist and all applicants will be notified of their acceptance status.
