Executive Development Seminar for Deans

Registration External Link is open for the 2019 Executive Development Seminar for Deans!

The Executive Development Seminar for Deans (EDD) is held annually in January. It is designed for new permanent, interim, or acting deans and intended to quickly orient the newly appointed dean to the responsibilities that are integral to this key leadership position. Deans will learn from national experts and have the opportunity to problem-solve current issues at their institutions. During the seminar, new deans learn about harnessing social and emotional intelligence; negotiation skills and conflict management; stewarding institutional resources such as talent, finances, and institutional reputation; best practices for advocacy; and emerging issues at academic medical centers. This seminar offers opportunities for new deans to network with one another and with AAMC leadership, learn from experiences at different schools, and build a cohesive peer group that provides support beyond the classroom.

Council of Deans Spring Meeting

The COD Spring Meeting is held annually in March/April and is the only national meeting designed exclusively for medical school deans. Every other year it is held jointly with the Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems (COTH). The Spring Meeting provides deans with the opportunity to access shared experiences and learn from global experts about promising practices that can be implemented to address key challenges to sustaining the medical education enterprise. In addition to putting leaders in touch with the ideas and experiences of experts inside and outside of academic medicine, the meeting provides opportunities for networking and interaction based on adult learning principles that will spark the creativity and novel thinking needed to drive change.
