New section

Designed for newly appointed permanent, interim, and acting deans, this seminar is intended to quickly orient participants 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.

Who Should Attend?

The Executive Development Seminar for Deans is open to current members of the Council of Deans (COD) and expected members whose appointments have been announced by an AAMC-member medical school. COD Fellows are also welcome to attend.

Upcoming Seminar

Given the recent surge in coronavirus cases throughout North America, AAMC leadership has made the decision to cancel the 2022 Executive Development Seminar for Deans.


Participation is by invitation only.

Learning Objectives

During the seminar, new deans gain perspective from national experts and from within their cohort on a variety of topics:

  • Emerging issues at academic medical centers;
  • Driving alignment across the academic medical center;
  • Stewarding institutional resources such as talent, finances, and institutional reputation;
  • Best practices for advocacy;
  • Leading your institution through major change events
