Over the course of three sessions, participants developed and refined their ideas and practiced pitching their idea in front of their peers and a panel of judges. Each participant received coaching throughout the process from institutional leaders.

“It was incredible to have the judges and leadership with the school support this initiative, not just the first day but throughout the training. This goes a long way – to know that there are folks who we may have not met or worked with before that are equally interested in promoting the skills and ideas of faculty in the system.” (Course Participant Evaluation Quote)

     Better than any other leadership    course that I have attended!

The inaugural cohort included nine faculty. The Office of Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development plans to offer this program up to twice a year. For more information, or to apply, contact Lauren Westervelt (lauren_westervelt@med.unc.edu).
