News from the Montana Medical Association

HELENA — The Montana Medical Association today announced that 11 Montana health care providers have been selected as participants in the 2023 Healthcare Excellence in Leadership Program. The local health care leader selected for the 2023 program is Tyler J. Thorson, M.D., Family Medicine of St. Luke Community Healthcare in Ronan.

“This marks the tenth year of the HELP program offering a top-notch faculty line-up and approach proven to enhance the leadership skills of health care professionals and grow their knowledge of health care policy in Montana,” said MMA Chief Executive Officer Jean Branscum. “The in-depth course holds an excellent track record of equipping participants with the tools and knowledge needed to be more effective in leadership roles within their practice and medical community.”

The Healthcare Excellence in Leadership Program was created in 2013 by Montana physicians to help industry health care professionals step into new and emerging leadership roles and engage in vital health care policy discussions across the state. Participants in this top-shelf leadership program attend sessions across Montana to learn about the state’s critical health care issues and gain the leadership skills needed to create positive change in their practice, hospital, and surrounding communities. The 2023 program is scheduled to bring participants together at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort for a first session from March 10-11. Last-minute applications are still being accepted - physicians, physician assistants, advanced nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and dentists are invited to submit applications today or contact the MMA Executive Office at 406-443-4000 for more information.
