Our Physicians Pitch Their ‘Shark Tank’ Ideas

Physician Leadership Development Program participants joined the leadership team at “The Shark Tank” event.

Participants in the sixth cohort of the Physician Leadership Development Program pitched proposals last week to the UMass Memorial Health Care leadership team to improve physician engagement, patient experience, quality improvement, and academic excellence and innovation. A collaboration between Human Resources and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the event is referred to as “The Shark Tank” because physicians are vying for innovation funds from the “sharks,” mirroring the ABC television show. Fifteen projects were pitched to the team as leaders, including President and CEO, Eric Dickson, who questioned the presenting physicians on their ideas and applauded them for their hard work.
