Council of Deans Fellowship Program

The Council of Deans Fellowship Program was created to enhance the development of future leaders in academic medicine. It is designed for senior faculty members, including department chairs and assistant and associate deans, who are interested in being considered for deanships in the near future. (Note: The program is not intended for candidates currently under active consideration for appointment to a deanship.)
