The challenges for leaders in academic medicine are many in today’s ever-changing business environment. As a new department chair or associate dean, you are responsible for critical operational functions that guide the success of your institution. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has developed the Organizational Leadership in Academic Medicine seminar with your unique professional issues in mind. It is designed to ensure you are equipped with the essential leadership and management skills needed to support your institutions' mission and goals.

As an Associate Dean or Department Chair who has been in your position for three years or less, this is an opportunity to join your colleagues for meaningful networking and skill building in the areas of:

  • Leadership
  • People and team management
  • Financial decision making
  • Communication

Through highly-interactive sessions taught by expert faculty, you will explore leadership and management practices and techniques that you can apply directly to your roles and responsibilities in medical schools and teaching hospitals.
