Professional Physician Formation Program
Professional Physician Formation Program Charter
Our purpose is to focus on meaning and purpose in medicine by developing programming and mentor/mentee relationships which assist the physician to stay “true” to core values of the medical profession to improve personal and interdisciplinary and patient satisfaction.
Core values include: Compassion, Integrity, Service and Competence.
The MVH Professional Physician Formation Program (PPFP) evolved from physician involvement in the MVH Relationship – Based Care Committee to develop programming to re-ignite the passion and richness of medicine, support physicians in the changing world of healthcare, and meet the needs of MVH Medical Staff. The PPFP is made possible by a generous grant from the MVH Foundation and matching funds from the MVH Medical Staff Executive Committee.
