Education Mission Leadership Development Program

Building on the success of the Graduate Medical Education Program Directors’ Leadership Development Program and the Undergraduate Medical Education Leadership Development Program, the Educator Community is combining the two programs and establishing the Education Mission Leadership Development Program. This allows us to join forces and achieve the following objectives:

  • invest in NYU Langone faculty who advance our educational mission
  • further integrate efforts along the continuum of medical education and establish more diverse and interdisciplinary cohorts of education leaders
  • communicate, promote, and develop our faculty and their educational programs in areas of growth and institutional priority
  • facilitate cross-departmental networking and sharing of best practices

The course curriculum includes the following topics:

  • establishing the foundational principles of leadership and strategy
  • building sustainable educational programs
  • transforming conflict into connection and collaboration
  • being a resilient leader and promoting wellness

Participants in the program receive these benefits:

  • personal reflection, action planning, feedback, and small-group work
  • proven frameworks and methods drawing on design thinking, feedback, group dynamics, stakeholder analysis, and innovation theory
  • access to subject matter experts
  • an environment that promotes shared learning and expression of diverse experiences and backgrounds

Program Requirements, Expectations, and Schedule

The program includes a team project, merging the application of new skills with institutional or departmental goals and priorities. The program starts in January and consists of six two-hour in-person sessions over the course of six months at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, 550 First Avenue in Manhattan. Additional meetings are based on team interest and availability.

The curriculum includes a personal and professional assessment and covers topics such as leadership and program development, fostering relationships with multiple stakeholders, conducting difficult conversations, maximizing your impact, and more.
