Cleveland Clinic’s Gina Cronin and AAPL’s Peter Angood bring their expertise to the session, slated for today at noon. Register now.

Physician leadership matters in health care, according to Gina Cronin, executive director for the Global Leadership and Learning Institute with Ohio’s Cleveland Clinic.

“As a physician-led organization, there are our most powerful tool,” she says in a video posted by Cleveland Clinic Executive Education. “They know everything there is to know about the clinical environment, but they also have valuable life lessons to share with each of our programs.”

The webinar comes a month after Cleveland Clinic and AAPL announced a partnership focused on advancing personal and organizational transformation for physician leaders through education, exposure and experience for physician leaders.

The alliance involves coordination of joint educational programming and the offering of exclusive, reciprocal rates for members and participants of both organizations. Cleveland Clinic and AAPL will also provide content to benefit physicians and physician leaders not currently engaged with either organization.

At Cleveland Clinic, a nonprofit multispecialty academic medical center and health system, Cronin guides leadership and learning for more than 50,000 employees – all known as “caregivers.” Her duties include the design and deployment of leadership development, performance and talent management, organizational effectiveness and learning technologies.

Angood, a surgeon and longtime advocate for physician leadership as a source for sustainable solutions, has led AAPL since 2011. The nonprofit association, based in Tampa, Florida, is the only professional organization solely focused on leadership education and management training for the physician workforce.
