Leadership

Leadership training benefits not only the trainees (fellows), but the School of Medicine as well, and the University as a whole. Benefits for the Fellows include making them aware of and training them in effective leadership styles in the context of academic medicine, familiarizing them with issues that occur and affect diverse, equitable and inclusive medical institutions, and helping them develop a network of colleagues across SUNY with similar ambitions and goals who can serve as a resource when they undertake future leadership responsibilities. Benefits for the University include the new perspectives that the Fellows bring to the table, the preparation of new leadership for the future of the School of Medicine, the nurturing and engagement of colleagues who become more connected and invested in the institution, and the completion of specific, beneficial short-term projects.
