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 up to 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.
The KPLI received the 2018 A.O. Sullivan Excellence in Education Award from MediStar on Oct. 30. Read More.
