Physician Leadership 

Mission Health has a remarkable legacy of improving the lives of the people of western North Carolina through compassionate, innovative healthcare and the work of dedicated providers and caregivers. Developing strong, engaged Physician Leaders is a talent management imperative in addressing the needs of our community and ongoing changes in the overall healthcare landscape.

The Physician Leadership Fellowship is a one-year program for Mission Physicians, both employed and affiliated. The goal of the program is to bolster Physician leadership at all levels and build the next generation of physicians to successfully lead healthcare transformation.
