As we continue on our journey of Reaching for Excellence, the Departments of Medicine and Psychiatry will Selwyn Vickerscarry on the Leadership Development Seminar Series (LDSS) where we bring in top leaders to speak to our Departments' staff about their view of leadership and how they got to be in their leadership position.  These speeches will be very high quality seminars and our goal is for these seminars to be comparable to sending our staff to expensive Leadership Seminars.  This is a great opportunity to promote leadership development for our outstanding staff.  DOM  and Psychiatry Faculty are welcome to attend these seminars as well.
 
The next speaker for our Leadership Development Seminar series will be Dr. Selwyn Vickers.  Dr. Vickers is Senior Vice President and Dean of Medicine.  He leads the medical school’s main campus in Birmingham, as well as regional campuses in Montgomery, Huntsville and Tuscaloosa.  

Dr. Vickers’ leadership speech will be Friday April 18, 2014 at 10:00 am in Margaret Cameron Spain Auditorium. Please encourage your staff (and Faculty) to attend these Leadership Development Seminar Series as we continue to help us make our Departments the best in the nation.
