“Looking back on my Leadership Academy experience, some of my proudest moments have come from watching young hospitalists truly grow over the course of the four day conference. It is so gratifying to then see their careers blossom at annual meetings, or even as they become board members. If you’re looking to grow your career, Leadership Academy is where you need to start.”
