Executive Director of the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) Foundation’s Kanof Institute for Physician Leadership Kristina Natt Och Dag along with other NCMS staff facilitated a leadership development program customized for fourth year medical students at Wake Forest University School of Medicine this week.

“In speaking with several students about the training, their impression was extremely positive,” said Roy Strowd, MD, an assistant professor of neurology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and a Kanof Institute Leadership College Scholar. “Medical students rarely find time and opportunity to think about who they are as a leader and how they are viewed and will be viewed as student and resident leaders by patients, colleagues and faculty. This short 1.5 hour leadership seminar has started to pave the way for what I think will be tremendous personal growth as these students begin their internship training. This is something that I really wish I was offered when going through my own training.”

The award-winning Kanof Institute offers the Leadership College and Health Care Leadership and Management programs as well as leadership training courses customized to meet the needs of your practice or health system. Learn more about all the institute offers and how to apply.
