Session Overview:

Are you developing leaders for your academic health system, medical center or hospital? If so, how are you going about it? And, if not, why not? Are there challenges you face as you develop or deliver a Leadership Program? In this session, we will discuss the role of CPD professionals in developing leaders for the AHS, AMC or teaching hospital. With the chapter we authored (with Allison McHugh) in Continuing Professional Development in Medicine and Health Care: Better Education, Better Patient Outcomes titled “Learning to Lead in an Academic Health System” as pre-reading,  and a slide deck about Collective Competency theory by Lorelei Lingard and her colleagues as pre-viewing, we will discuss why it is imperative to help system leaders reflect on and train for what it takes to lead themselves, others, and healthcare teams effectively to today’s complex environments.  We will then discuss what you are doing or aspire to do, any barriers you may have encountered, and how to address them.  We will also give a short overview of the CPD Leadership Program we and Dartmouth-Hitchcock colleagues developed in 2015-16 and show examples of the institutional impact and genuine outcomes the Program is starting to generate. We hope you’ll join us.


At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • 1.      discuss concepts regarding leading yourself, others, and inter-professional health care teams
  • 2.      use a CPD focus to influence the design/redesign or development of a current or future Leadership Program
  • 3.      describe the elements of a Leadership program where participants are generating specific goals and outcomes that are based of their leadership  training
