Dates: July 15-18, 2020
Venue: ADEA Offices, 655 K Street NW, Ste. 800
Location: Washington, DC

The ADEA Emerging Leaders Program is designed to provide early-career faculty showing great promise as potential leaders the guidance, insight and skills needed to build an academic career.


The year-long program begins in July with a highly interactive three-and-a-half day onsite session at ADEA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. During the meeting, fellows will engage with senior leaders in dental education and work in peer groups to discuss leadership development and other essential subjects in academic dentistry


Following the July meeting, fellows will interact through online and other virtual experiences with their peer groups and advisors throughout the year as they develop research projects that highlight emerging trends and initiatives within academic dentistry, the profession as a whole and at ADEA member institutions specifically. The year-long program culminates with peer group presentations of their research findings during a dedicated session at the 2021 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.


Following this dynamic professional development retreat, you will be able to:

  • Discuss current topics and trends in academic dentistry
  • Expand your professional network of colleagues and mentors across the country
  • Create a career plan focusing on activities that will build your professional capacities.
  • Assess and develop leadership competencies to prepare for future opportunities within your institution and within ADEA.
