Leadership Institute

The UAMS Leadership Institute is an 11 month course aimed at identifying and developing leaders who will contribute to the continued success of UAMS. The participants will have the opportunity to interact with colleagues and professionals from the campus and community, gain a better understanding of their personal leadership styles, build relationships across campus and understand the issues facing leaders in the health care industry. Participants will also engage in on-going one-on-one leadership coaching sessions that aim to enhance self-awareness in order to grow and develop as a leader.

The time commitment is one full day per month and one meeting per month for 1.5 hours. The expectation is that leaders will spend some personal time examining and applying the skills and using the tools associated with the course.
