Last week our very own Geoff Rubin, MD, Radiologist from Duke Radiology, Board Member of ACR’s Radiology Leadership Institute, and President of ISCT, completed his very first Facebook Live video in which he shared some valuable tips on leadership in radiology. The video serves as a teaser for an online ACR course he’s helping organize titled RLI Breakthrough Leadership: Maximizing Your Influence and Impact.

The course, which is a 12-week online cohort-based program running from October through May, combines the best of live, virtual class sessions with self-paced weeks set aside for deep dives into supplemental content such as articles, case studies, and on-demand modules. Participants have the capability to devour content on their own time, take notes, frame questions, participate in discussion boards led by high-level faculty, and discuss their feedback in virtual class sessions for a high-impact learning experience.

The course will cover three over-arching session topics to help those in leadership roles, or who may plan to take on a larger leadership role, gain a fundamental understanding of their new responsibilities, how to manage communications within their department and with other departments as well, and how to effectively leverage their role for greater impact.

Over the 12 weeks attendees can expect to gain deeper insight as they learn the following skills in addition to several soft skills like interpersonal relationship building, how to support your team, conflict management, etc.:

·      How to enable engagement & efficiency in your practice and larger health systems

·      How to deal with radiology within the workflow of other departments

·      How to understand the role the legal department plays in the health system

·      How to lead from the “middle”

·      How to interpret financial statements

·      How to understand and manage costs

·      How to lead and influence other departments

·      How to use your seat effectively to influence positive change

RLI Breakthrough Leadership: Maximizing Your Influence and Impact, accredited for up to 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s), is an innovative virtual course that’s a “must attend” for anyone in the radiology world who is stepping into a leadership role or looking to enhance their current leadership skills. Each session is led by a team of experts who bring unique backgrounds and sets of experience to the table, guaranteeing an engaging, relevant, and incredibly valuable course.
