Faculty Scholars Leadership Program

By application only:
Sponsored by funding from the DOP, the goal of the Department of Pediatrics (DOP) Faculty Scholars Program is to strengthen our cadre of teaching faculty and support the development, implementation, and evaluation of innovative curricula designed to improve pediatric graduate medical education while integrating training in culturally competent and family-centered care.  This type of training is critical to being responsive to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) directives to train residents and fellows to provide high quality care to an increasingly diverse population.  

Healthcare Leadership Academy

The purpose of the HLA is to establish a cohesive and comprehensive program that offers training opportunities and helps develop essential skills for leaders in the 21st century academic health center. In part, this is accomplished by providing present and future leaders with a broader understanding of the responsibilities as leaders, new perspective on critical leadership and managerial issues they face, and a deeper understanding and awareness of concepts and techniques relevant to management.

Leadership Development Series

In conjunction with the UAB Office of Learning and Development, the Office of Faculty Development will present quarterly lectures, seminars and workshops to provide resources and training to address fundamental topics faced by all future faculty leaders. Presentations will teach methods to lead collaborative teams, motivation techniques, and goal setting for teams. Ongoing programs presented will be based on requests and feedback received from our pediatric faculty.
