Provider Leadership Development

Provider Leadership Structure

UnityPoint Clinic values physician and advanced practitioner leadership at every level of the organization. We encourage providers to get involved in many different capacities, ensuring that the provider voice is represented in everything we do.

Governance

UnityPoint Clinic is built on a foundation of strong provider governance. Practicing providers elected by their peers serve on the Regional Provider Councils, the system Physician Governance Council, and the Board of Directors.

To inform our governance bodies, we have a number of committees devoted to different aspects of our organization. Committees composed of physicians and advanced practitioners include:

  • Clinical Quality Assurance Committee
  • Compensation Committee
  • Provider Engagement Team
  • Physician Ambulatory Advisory Committee
  • Peer Review Committee
  • Advanced Practitioner Committee

We strongly encourage providers at any stage in their career to get involved in the leadership of UnityPoint Clinic through service on a committee or one of our governing bodies.

Management

UnityPoint Clinic has a developed provider management structure to support the day-to-day management of our organization. At the highest level, we have physicians who serve on the senior leadership team in a variety of capacities. We have Vice President Medical Directors, Department Medical Directors, and Associate Medical Directors. We also have a provider leader in each clinic who serves in a dyad relationship with their Clinic Administrator. We believe that the best decisions are made with input from both operational and clinical leaders.

Physician Leadership Academy

The UnityPoint Health Physician Leadership Academy is instrumental in preparing physicians to help lead our organization in reaching its goal of being the premier health organization in the Midwest.

This Master's level program is designed for physicians who have already demonstrated great potential as leaders. The goal is to equip physician leaders with the skills required to effectively manage challenging health care initiatives and significantly contribute to the strategic direction of our health system. The Academy also serves as an opportunity to build relationships and a network across the organization. Learn more!

Physician Executive Fellowship

UnityPoint Clinic offers an exclusive Physician Executive Fellowship program for physicians currently in a leadership role who are looking to advance their leadership aptitude. This two-year program is designed to provide exposure to higher levels of leadership, and provide individualized leadership development for high-potential physician leaders. Through practical and experiential learning, Fellows gain a deeper understanding of the role physician leaders play at the highest levels of the organization. Fellows attend key leadership meetings, meet regularly with senior leaders, and are responsible for leading a strategic initiative.
