Leadership in Academic Medicine Program

Welcome to the Department of Internal Medicine's LEAD: Leadership in Academic Medicine Program webpage. The Department is excited to offer this dynamic, interactive program. LEAD seeks to build a culture of leadership within the Medical University of South Carolina through the development of established and future leaders of high potential. This will be accomplished by enhancing individual skills associated with leadership self-discovery, working within teams and driving change.

The program brings nationally recognized experts in the field to our campus to conduct a series of 1-2 day classroom sessions and to oversee practical, group case-based work between sessions.  Selected participants can expect to expand their knowledge of leadership principles, improve their abilities to apply proven leadership behaviors, and advance their capacity to drive results by working collaboratively in interdisciplinary teams. Cohorts of participants continue to be highly engaged after session work concludes, and we rely heavily on their evaluations and career outcomes to direct program development. Eligible participants will include faculty and staff from the Department of Internal Medicine, and individuals from other Departments and Colleges.
