AAIM Executive Leadership Program: Program Overview

Leaders within academic internal medicine who fill managerial roles often have not had opportunities to engage in formal educational experiences focused on the responsibilities of these positions. While recognition of success in the clinical, educational, or research arenas paves the way for promotion to department chair, program director, division chief, chief administrative officer, or other such positions, it is knowledge, skills, and attitudes about finances, planning, management, operations, and leadership that create the opportunity for success in new leadership roles.
