Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Certificate Program

The Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) certificate program is a year-long, cohort-based, nation-wide educational leadership development program administered through the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).  An institution-sponsored program (ISP) model of LEAD will be offered at OUWB each calendar year (January – December). Up to 16 Fellows will be accepted into the local LEAD program at OUWB.

The LEAD program fosters practical knowledge drawn from the best recognized theoretical models and best practices of effective leadership that are relevant to medical education organizations and processes.  This program is targeted for early to mid-career faculty who are aspiring to or are already in leadership roles in medical education. Professional staff in leadership roles also can be considered as a Fellow in the LEAD Cohort. Upon successful completion of the LEAD program, graduates will receive an AAMC LEAD Certificate of Recognition.

Peer Coaching

Peer Coaching is an intentional coaching program for faculty interested in creating reciprocal collaboration with peer faculty from Michigan medical schools. Peers are matched based on research and teaching interests.  Each year, we provide the opportunity for faculty to continue their current coaching groups or match with additional faculty members.
