Residents who wish to join an Academy must identify a leadership mentor and a mentored-project within that Academy. Faculty within each Academy can help residents identify a project of interest. Residents should then meet with their leadership mentor at least 2 to 4 times per year to discuss the resident's progress in leadership development, reflecting on the resident's strengths and areas of focus as a leader.
Each Academy also produces quarterly workshops, also on a loosely revolving curriculum. These are scheduled outside of Grand Rounds, typically at a restaurant or faculty house. Residents within the particular Academy are strongly encouraged to attend, although these workshops are open to any resident or faculty member, even those not formally affiliated with the Leadership Curriculum. Residents can join more than one Academy as long as they complete the requirements of each Academy, including a separate mentored project.
ELA Recurring Curriculum:
Year 1 - Getting Academic Credit for your Work in Education/Education Research, Providing Feedback, How to Run a Meeting/Lead a Discussion Group
