On July 25, the Kentucky Physicians Leadership Institute (KPLI) was awarded the American Association of Medical Society Executives (AAMSE) Profiles of Excellence Award for Leadership during the AAMSE Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, PA.
The AAMSE Profiles of Excellence recognize outstanding achievements by medical societies in various arenas. The Leadership category honors the development and implementation of member leadership programs that create pathways for physician leadership at the county, state or national level and/or develop leadership competencies to meet the challenges of medicine.
The KPLI was selected for its innovative approach to physician leadership training.
According to comments from the selection committee, “The development of the KPLI had a significant impact on the medical society and strengthened its relationship with key KMA members. It is designed to provide physicians with lifelong learning that they are not receiving from other sources.”
This is the second award for the KPLI in the last year. In October 2018, the program was honored with the MediStar A.O. Sullivan Excellence in Education Award.
The Greater Louisville Medical Society (GLMS) was also honored at the AAMSE Annual Meeting with the Profiles of Excellence Membership Award for “Engaging and Investing in the Future of Organized Medicine.” The Lexington Medical Society (LMS) was recognized as well with the Profiles of Excellence Education Award for their role in the development of the LifeBridge Physician Wellness Program.
Eleven physicians from across the state are participating in the 2019 class of the KPLI. The program’s multi-weekend sessions begin Aug. 9 and will wrap up during the KMA Annual Meeting on Sept. 21.
