RLI Awards First Certificate of Leadership Mastery™

January 28, 2015

Ian Weissman, DO, is the first participant to complete all four levels of the Radiology Leadership Institute® program and earn a Certificate of Leadership Mastery™. He completed the program, including a practicum, through a series of live meetings, webinars and online courses.

“Achieving the Certificate of Leadership Mastery has led to a cultural transformation in the way I now regard our profession because I am constantly thinking about better ways to provide exceptional health care,” said Ian Weissman, DO. “I would like to thank the RLI board and staff who have had the vision to produce this landmark program.”

The RLI offers a unique educational structure where participants “graduate” through progressive levels of leadership training by earning RLI Credits in important topic areas. Levels I-IV are instructional in nature and can be completed by satisfying the credit requirements for each level. Participants earn RLI certificates of achievement for completing each level.

“On behalf of the entire RLI Board and staff, I want to congratulate Ian on this significant accomplishment,” said Cynthia S. Sherry, MD, FACR, medical director of the Radiology Leadership Institute and chair of the American College of Radiology Commission on Leadership and Practice Development. “We look forward to hearing about his continued success.”

Weissman is a staff radiologist for the Milwaukee Veterans Affairs Medical Center where he has a clinical appointment at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He has received numerous research competition awards from the American College of Nuclear Physicians and the Society of Nuclear Medicine and was recognized with the Research Trainee Prize through the Radiological Society of North America. Weissman is currently involved with mentoring radiology residents using the skills and knowledge obtained from the RLI.
