Please join us in congratulating the graduates from The Academy’s On-site Physician Leadership Program for Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH) in Western Washington.

The curriculum was uniquely designed by The Academy to reflect the goals of the participating physicians, business objectives of PSJH, and coursework taught in The Academy’s National Physician Leadership Program.
