    GFP Webinar: Hiring, Supporting and Incentivizing Department Chiefs in Today’s Dynamic Environment

    Department chiefs and chairs today are taking on larger roles in leading large clinical enterprises that not only expand their own organizations but an entire network. This has increased the need for management experience to ensure success in these roles. This urgency has increased as new clinical imperatives continue to expand. With these changes in mind, what should organizations be looking for in department leaders and chairs? What skills do leaders need to acquire to be successful? How can incentives be aligned to further success? This webinar sponsored by the AAMC's Group on Faculty Practice (GFP) suggested the critical skills and attributes essential for a successful department chief or chair and invited discussion regarding meeting the challenge of filling these important positions. The speaker shared specific, actionable ways to recruit, incentivize, and support department leaders.
