Topics covered span from strategic communication skills to negotiation to leadership topics. Small-group sessions focus on mentoring participants in career building skills in narrative and CV development. The seminar faculty are chosen for their demonstrated leadership abilities from various schools in the United States and Canada and offer knowledge, inspiration and valuable career advice.

The seminar is targeted at physicians and Ph.D. scientists holding medical school appointments, and in the early stages of leadership positions within their discipline, department or institution.

Course Description:

The seminar covers leadership topics and provides skills related to academic medicine career building and strategic thinking about career development. Attendees will develop their professional network through small-group career mapping sessions. The seminar is for physicians and scientists holding medical school appointments and in the early stages of leadership positions within their discipline, department or institution. CME credit is available for eligible participants.


Target Audience:
This seminar is designed for assistant professors (associate professors are not eligible).

Seminar objectives are:
To assist participants in creating an agenda for working toward leadership goals;
To provide participants with insights into the realities of building a career in academic medicine;
To help participants to expand their network of colleagues; and
To assist participants in identifying the skill areas in need of further development.

 
Practice Gap – Data & Design of Seminar:
The 2009-2010 AAMC Women in U.S. Academic Medicine: Statistics and Benchmarking Report revealed that the distribution of medical school faculty by rank and gender has not significantly changed from the 2008-2009 report. According to the 2009-2010 report,
• 18% of full professors are women (as opposed to 17% in 2008-2009)
• 30% of associate professors are women (no increase, it was 30% in 2008-2009)
• 42% of assistant professors are women (as opposed to 41% in 2008-2009)
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) is committed to 1) increasing the numbers of women faculty remaining in academic medicine and into leadership positions and 2) to support and further the skill and career development of women in academic medicine. The program is therefore designed to enhance the leadership.

Credit Designation Statement:
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 27.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Cultural and Linguistic Competency:
California Assembly Bill 1195 requires continuing medical education activities with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency. It is the intent of the bill, which went into effect on July 1, 2006, to encourage physicians and surgeons, CME providers in the state of California, and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to meet the cultural and linguistic concerns of a diverse patient population through appropriate professional development. The planners, speakers and authors of this CME activity have been encouraged to address issues relevant in their topic area. Additional resources and information about AB1195 can be found on the UCSD CME website at http://cme.ucsd.edu.

Accreditation Statement:
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the AAMC.
