About the Course
Using the results from the comprehensive CPI Assessment, this module reviews the characteristics, motivations, and thinking-styles of the group.

The American Association of Physician Leadership’s CPI 260 is an online assessment which provides a high-level tool for analyzing the unique competencies required for healthcare workers.
