New section

New section

Leaders in academic medicine and science face many pressures including limited resources, expectations for results and complex team dynamics. These challenges, combined with differences in ideas, perceptions, and priorities often create conflicts that are difficult to manage and resolve. During this introductory one-day workshop on conflict management, you will explore how to transform conflict into opportunities for collaboration and problem-solving. Through self-assessment, experiential exercises, and discussions with your peers, you will discover practical strategies for making difficult conversations more productive and for creating a respectful environment in which to resolve conflict.

Who Should Attend?

All formal and informal leaders (faculty or staff) who have not had formal training in conflict management or who are interested in brushing up on their skills.

Upcoming Workshops

The AAMC has decided to cancel all planned in-person meetings through June 30, 2021 as the health and safety of our constituents and staff remains our top priority. We are committed to finding safe and effective alternative ways to bring together the academic medicine community and appreciate your patience as we consider options. At this time, a date and location has not yet been determined for the next in-person seminar. We will update our website as soon as additional information becomes available. More information about cancelled meetings is available on our Coronavirus Updates page
