DCLP Class of 2019 includes two from DGIM

Sunday, February 10, 2019

We are proud to highlight that the Duke Clinical Leadership Program (DCLP), class of 2019, includes two from the division of general internal medicine — Daniella Zipkin, MD and Megan Brooks, MD, MPH (Hospitalist). The other two from medicine in this class of 24 are Beatrice Hong, MD (Endocrinology) and Eli Chuang, MD (DRAH Hospitalist). We look forward to the application of their new skills as clinical leaders in the health system.

For acceptance these mid-career clinicians submitted a competitive application and obtained the required nomination from our departmental leaders. As a result they get to attend six, full-day, extremely informative sessions over the course of six months, the first day was this week, February 4.

The topics addressed are key ones for understanding healthcare operations and developing the necessary leadership skills:

Strategy and Health Policy
Funds Flow and Operations at Duke
Negotiation
Leveraging Leadership Styles
Managing Personnel
Navigating Difficult Conversations

DCLP is one of several leadership opportunities at Duke. The others are:

ADVANCE-UP: Academic Development, Advocacy, Networking, Coaching and Education for Underrepresented Populations

ALICE: Academic Leadership, Innovation, and Collaborative Engagement for mid-career women faculty

LEADER: Leadership Development for Researchers

We are aware that many leaders in healthcare first are general internal medicine career physicians. Click here to read more about our track record of effective leaders in medicine. And, mark your calendar to apply for the DCLP program next fall!
