The one-year program will include a series of live, synchronous workshops that will bring together trainees at the NC Medical Society office in Raleigh, NC. The sessions will focus on leadership, teamwork, communication, and career development. An interactive and participative approach will probe student experiences, build new perspective, and focus on each student’s individual development as a leader. The purpose is to build leadership that centers on self-awareness and fosters authenticity that allows each student to act in alignment with their core values as a leader, encourage and assess information from different perspectives, and balance transparency. As research shows, self-awareness is crucial as a sustainable platform for effective leadership1 and is fundamental to build confidence and self-worth as a leader.

With the individual core as a foundation to leadership development, this course prepares students for the leadership journey, allowing the individual to establish a strong sense of purpose and understanding of who they want to be as a leader. The format for the program builds on three explicit design elements: Theory and Knowledge; Clinical Application, and Reflection and Dialogue.

The purpose of the design is to ensure the connection between theory and practice and allow for peer-learning and feedback to further ensure participants apply learning beyond the classroom. Classroom sessions will further be combined with virtual campus meetings to keep building knowledge as well as sustain the group as a cohort.

As participants go through the program, sessions build knowledge and skills from previous sessions and the participants will be provided with theory and practice on key aspects involving leadership development as listed per the three key elements above.
