Health care is complex and fast-moving and occupational health physicians recognize that providing excellent care is not enough. They know that it is also critical to develop exceptional leadership skills and business acumen. This interactive workshop is designed to include succinct presentations on advanced leadership and management tools and case examples about how occupational health physicians have already positively impacted clinical care and program development within several companies. The lead speaker is a renowned health care business professor and the other faculty members are innovative occupational health physician leaders who have mastered leadership and management skills to present business cases for new or improved services with measurable return on investment, and process improvement techniques and tools to improve the delivery of occupational health services and demonstrate value. Attendees will have the opportunity to present their own management challenges to the faculty in advance and during the interactive workshop to maximize on this learning opportunity. Management challenges may be sent in advance to Dr. Craig Thorne at
