The Leadership Development Program provides an opportunity for a select group of individuals to enhance their careers in the School of Medicine (SOM), and for the School to expand the pool of well-qualified candidates ready for advancement.
This eight-month program is designed to help give SOM participants access to:
- Structured sessions focused on essential knowledge areas, including: Communications and Operations, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, and Leading Through Influence.
- Leadership discussions exploring relationships between the SOM and other UCSF entities, including its affiliates.
- Leadership and management skills development.
- Networking opportunities with UCSF leaders, program alumni, managers, and peers.
The LDP course exceeded my expectations. I was worried that I wouldn't have the time needed to really make it beneficial, but that was no issue whatsoever. The invited speakers were amazing and were able share their experiences in a way that really spoke to me. I also very much enjoyed meeting all of the other participants, and some of us working in research have since created a group where we meet once a month. In summary, it was amazing and I would highly recommend to anyone!
