About the KPLI
The Kentucky Physicians Leadership Institute (KPLI) is the premier leadership training program for physicians in Kentucky. Each year, this exclusive program will select 15 physicians to participate in a year-long series of learning events that will cultivate the next generation of physician leaders across the state. The four primary events, culminating in the KMA Leadership Academy, will help address many of the challenges facing the physician community.
Fred Williams, M.D., chair of the Kentucky Physicians Leadership Institute, a program of the Kentucky Foundation for Medical Care and the Kentucky Medical Association, discusses the program and how it can benefit Kentucky physicians.
