Two faculty from the Department of Pediatrics have been selected for the School of Medicine's LEADER program.
Leadership Development for Researchers (LEADER) is a 3-part workshop designed for junior faculty who are leading a research group and driving their own research agenda. The course provides insight into leadership and team building as well as direction on how to develop and manage a scientific laboratory or research program, how to improve productivity, and how to harness creativity and innovation.
The program was developed to bridge the gap between the scientific expertise that led individuals to a career in academic medicine, and the management skills that will be required to succeed as the leaders of small business units.
Faculty from the Department of Pediatrics in the 2020 class include:
- Jennifer Cohen, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics (Medical Genetics)
- Areeg El-gharbawy, MD, MBBCh, professor of pediatrics (Medical Genetics)
