  • CHIME CMIO Leadership Academy

    The CMIO role in today’s healthcare organization has never been more challenging. To better equip physician leaders filling this important position, CHIME will host the fourth annual CMIO Leadership Academy (formerly known as CMIO Boot Camp).

    Designed for physicians currently in CMIO or Associate CMIO positions seeking to take their role to the next level, this curriculum is modeled on the highly successful CHIME Healthcare CIO Boot Camp. This program’s leadership content is specifically tailored for CMIOs to gain the real-world skills necessary for today’s successful physician leaders.

    Taught by a faculty of healthcare CIOs and CMIOs, this intensive program features a collaborative teaching methodology combining presentations, small group discussions, case study analysis, progressive problem solving, and personal mentoring – focused on equipping CMIOs to be successful leaders working with the executive suite and CIOs.

    Read what previous alumni have to say about the program:

    “In an era of rapidly changing technology and even definition of the role of the CMIO I found the CHIME CMIO Leadership Academy a terrific opportunity to learn from the experts as well as colleagues from around the country who are working on many of the same issues that I am. The faculty was very knowledgeable and supportive and the enthusiasm of fellow participants in the weekend was really energizing. I came back to work with new enthusiasm and new ideas about how to manage the challenges of the rapid rate of change in medical informatics.”Bill DeWolf, MD – Sutter Health East Bay Region

    ” I learned a ton and am still connecting things I see on a daily basis with what the faculty covered.”
    Jonathan Kaufmann, DO – The Queen’s Health System

    “…the course and the networking are invaluable. The other awesome part is that the speakers are very approachable and they are great resource beyond the event. I would highly recommend anyone in a CMIO role to attend.”
    Myhanh J. Nguyen, MD – Wentworth Douglas Hospital
