Finding ways to execute physician leadership development programs and how individuals and teams are affected by these programs are of particular interest to those in the healthcare industry. This mixed-methods study compares the resultant outcomes of two identical physician leader development courses conducted under different conditions, one a homogeneous (physician-only) class and the other an interprofessional (doctors, nurses, administrators) class. Quantitative and qualitative surveys were used to determine and compare the effectiveness of participation in the homogeneous or interprofessional condition.
