Faculty within the College of Medicine serve as leaders in many different capacities. Whether they maintain a formal leadership role; manage a lab; educate residents, fellows, and students; or participate as an active member of a team, FAME provides support for acquiring critical competencies to excel within these roles. FAME offers a combined approach of one-session programming paired with both the Faculty Leadership Institute (FLI) and the FAME Unites Emerging Leaders (FUEL) cohort programs. These courses aim to improve leadership skills by helping participants to increase self-awareness and emotional intelligence; recognize their strengths, challenges, and values as leaders; develop their ability to initiate and lead change efforts and build high-performing teams; and strengthen their relational skills to generate and effectively communicate mutually beneficial solutions that build consensus and resolve conflict.
This 10-month program will help train faculty in the necessary competencies to become principled leaders. Participants can expect to elevate self-leadership skills by exhibiting emotional intelligence and recognizing strengths, challenges and values as a leader; strengthen stewardship skills by developing the ability to initiate and lead change efforts; and improve relational skills by formulating mutually beneficial solutions that build consensus and resolve conflict.
FUEL marks the second leadership cohort for FAME, joining our flagship cohort, Faculty Leadership Institute (FLI). Leadership skills are as important as clinical competency in achieving professional success but few training programs devote time to developing these skills. This program was designed to enhance faculty’s knowledge in leadership and building/developing more effective teams.
