Academic medicine is changing—and so is leadership.  

Leadership development has never been more essential to anticipating, navigating, and solving the complex challenges facing today’s medical schools and teaching hospitals. Whether you are an executive-level leader, new to a leadership position, or in a role where you want to make a difference in your community and profession, the AAMC can help you prepare to lead yourself, your team, and your organization into the future.

With the health and safety of our constituents and staff as our top priority, the AAMC has canceled all planned in-person meetings through June 30, 2021. In the interim, the AAMC is offering select online leadership development workshops and seminars. Learn more about our virtual programming.
