The Leadership in Academic Medicine Program (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 2019-2020 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
  • Discovering Your Strengths
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Maintaining Balance in your Work
  • Promotion and Tenure Guidance
  • Change Management
  • Leadership Practices
  • Effective Teaching 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 academic goals and career plan.
