2013 ADEA Summer Program for Emerging Academic Leaders

Many current leaders in academic dentistry are alumni of the AADS Summer Program Career Development for Faculty Leaders: An Immersion Workshop. ADEA recreated and refreshed this well-regarded program for junior faculty members, both those joining faculty after a residency or after private practice.

This three and half day program covered topics such as leadership styles, team building and time management that are essential to planning and implementing a successful academic career. This highly interactive immersion program was designed specifically to give junior faculty guidance, insight and skills to propel their career.

The face-to-face instruction ended on July 15 but the collaborative learning experience continued via quarterly video conferences throughout the year.
