The ALICE Program – Academic Leadership, Innovation, and Collaborative Engagement – will provide in-depth opportunities for leadership skill development, personal reflection and goal setting, peer-mentoring, and structured 360 feedback. The program aims to address the widely recognized gap in the number of women in senior leadership positions in academic medicine by providing a tailored leadership development opportunity for women.
Participants from the Department of Medicine are:
- Cathleen Colon-Emeric, MD, associate professor of medicine (Geriatrics)
- Susan Gurley, MD, associate professor of medicine (Nephrology)
- Njira Lugogo, MD, assistant professor of medicine (Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine)
- Gillian Sanders Schmidler, PhD , associate professor of medicine
- Heather Whitson, MD, associate professor of medicine (Geriatrics)
This year-long program will include a combination of full-day, half-day, and 1-2-hour sessions. Content will focus on personal leadership skills designed to help individuals gain greater self-awareness, management, and communication skills needed to deftly navigate leadership in academic medicine.
