Leadership in Academic Medicine (LAMP)

Leadership in Academic Medicine (LAMP) is a year-long, cohort-based faculty development and orientation program for faculty in their 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 2013-2014 curriculum includes sessions specifically designed for both clinicians and research faculty and involves a one-on-one coaching session with a senior faculty member.

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 every session during the academic year.  Space is limited to ensure a personalized approach to your academic goals and career plan. 

How to apply

  • Request a nomination from your department chair or division director.
  • Submit a one-page document describing your career goals and what you most want to accomplish in the next three years.
    Submit both documents to ofapd@iupui.edu

    Application Deadline: 
    AUGUST 2, 2013

    Contact Emily Walvoord, Assistant Dean of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development, at ofapd@iupui.edu or call (317) 278-3089. Space is limited to ensure a personalized approach to your academic goals and career plan
