Leading & Management

LEADERSHIP MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE

MODULE 2:
Friday, May 2, 2014 (full day session) – Leadership, High-Performing Teams and Leading Change

Sponsored by: ColumbiaDoctors, the Columbia faculty practice organization, and the Office of Academic Affairs, College of Physicians and Surgeons

In the spring of 2014, Columbia University Medical Center offered an institute for junior and mid-level faculty with at least four to five years at Columbia who have leadership/management responsibilities or who wish to include these in their career path. The Leadership & Management Institute helped participants develop knowledge and skills necessary for current and future leadership positions in academic medicine.

Application: Applicants were nominated by program or department chairs, and directors, or by self-nomination. Applicants were asked to submit a C.V. and a personal statement no longer than one single-spaced, typed page that addressed their expected personal outcomes from the institute; impact of the institute in relation to their current or desired leadership role; and, as available, a brief description of a project they were undertaking or would propose to develop for the project requirement of the institute. Although a project was not needed at the time of application, a project was proposed at the time of the institute.

LAB MANAGEMENT COURSE WITH KATHY BARKER

I Was Trained To Do Everything But Run A Lab!
By learning more about the requirements of being a lab manager and mentor, establishing their own practical and ethical frameworks, and practicing time management, conflict mediation, and other overlooked skills, junior faculty can be more effective in the lab and in science.
