Emerging Leaders in Academic Medicine

Grow as a leader

Has your department or academic site identified a need to develop new leaders in medical education, research, or academic administration?

Would your succession plan benefit from opportunities to expand faculty leadership capacity in a local context? 

The Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine has introduced a program in academic leadership for clinical and basic science faculty, Emerging Leaders in Academic Medicine (ELAM). The program provides an opportunity for faculty with limited leadership experience to become more familiar with the functioning of the medical school and acquire knowledge and skills to take on expanded roles in their academic settings.

Comments from our graduates

"It was great to be able to complete the course work when I had the time, instead of having to fit a set time into my schedule."

"This challenged me but was not too difficult either. It was a good balance."

"I recognized that a lot of the faculty locally who are in leadership positions face the same challenges I face, regardless of department or leadership role. Overall, this was a fantastic course. I feel that it should be offered and be mandated for all faculty who take on a leadership role."

"I really enjoyed the opportunity to learn and reflect on leadership."
