About the Session

This program will begin with a 10-minute introduction by Dr. Barraco to the perceived leadership gap that exists in medical education to address the needs of our provider workforce. That will be followed by five minutes of interactive question and answer with polling technology evaluating the state of leadership training among participants and descriptions of key programs offered by members of the AAMC SGEA SIG on innovation and leadership presented by Dr. Musick over the next 15 minutes. Dr. Whalen will present a 15-minute case study of the SELECT graduate certificate program at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine in collaboration with Lehigh Valley Health Network. Participants will then be asked to discuss in small groups any similar programs at their facilities, focusing on methods and assessment of outcomes, followed by questions and answers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss leadership education in medical education.
  • Identify assessment methods for leadership education in medical education.
