Leadership

As education is increasingly viewed as a distinct area of expertise within academic medicine, educators are being called upon to not only teach, but also to lead. The Leadership block provides an opportunity to explore concepts such as emotional intelligence, how to influence and motivate others, group and classroom dynamics, power dynamics, organizational change, and the impact of organizational culture on leading and learning in complex systems. Central to this block is the understanding that people with advanced training in education will be called upon to develop and administer programs, which requires leadership skills that few in medicine are ever taught. 

Partnering with experts from leadership, business, education and medical fields, participants will closely examine theories of leadership, how these theories integrate with educational theories, and how both may be applied to built effective programming within their home institutions.
