2014 ADEA Summer Program for Emerging Academic Leaders

The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) presents the 2014 ADEA Summer Program for Emerging Academic Leaders. The program is designed for faculty members who have been at their institution for less than three years, and who have demonstrated the potential for making significant contributions to academic dentistry. The program focuses on helping faculty plan and implement successful academic careers by cultivating leadership, facilitating networking with colleagues and providing mentorship from leaders in dental education.

Learning Objectives of the ADEA Summer Program

  • Understand current major topics and trends in academic dentistry.
  • Build a professional network of colleagues and mentors.
  • Create career plans to help faculty focus on activities that will build their professional capacities.
  • Assess and develop leadership competencies to help prepare early-career faculty for future opportunities (both institutionally and within ADEA).
