The Leadership Development Program provides an opportunity for a select group of staff 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 SOM staff employees prepare for the transition to leadership roles by broadening their perspective on critical functions and relationships and identifying the skills needed to become a SOM leader. The program also offers invaluable opportunities to interact and network with senior leadership, faculty, managers, and peers in the school.

Being an effective leader at UCSF is important to me. I am so grateful to have been accepted into the SOM LDP 2021-2022 cohort as it has helped me significantly enhance my leadership skills and learn about important topics at our institution such as DEI, Communications, Finance and many more. I would highly recommend this program to any aspiring UCSF leaders!
