LAMP

The Leadership in Academic Medicine Program LAMP Bindercover(LAMP) is a year-long, cohort-based faculty development and orientation program for faculty in the second and third years of their appointment. The seminars introduce participants to the fundamentals of career planning, self-management and leadership skills. As a result of this program faculty have tools that will enable them to accomplish their primary career goals and aspirations.

The 2016-2017 curriculum includes sessions specifically designed for both clinicians and research faculty and involves a one-on-one coaching session with a senior faculty member. Tentative curriculum topics include:

  • Managing Professionals
  • Giving Feedback
  • Understanding Personality Style Differences
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Maintaining Balance in your Work
  • Managing Grant Budgets
  • Change Management
  • Leadership Practices

Please note that our topics may change based on the feedback from previous participants and speaker availability.

Commitment

Because of the time investment required for LAMP, we ask that all applicants solicit a letter of support from their chair or division director. It is our expectation that LAMP participants will commit to attend all nine sessions during the academic year. Space is limited to ensure a personalized approach to your academic goals and career plan.
