The target audience for the College of Health Care Sciences’ Leadership and Management Academy is employees in administrative departmental positions, and faculty members who aspire to be a manager or leader. Program Directors and Chairs who desire to improve their skills in leadership, team building, effective communication and overall management skills are encouraged to participate. Faculty members who desire to build their leadership skills for their current roles, and/or envision themselves in an administrative role in the future, will also find the Leadership and Management Academy resources beneficial. The Academy will include a series of organized teaching/learning modules that meet the needs of the participants who are actively engaged in the learning process. This course content, as well as other educational modules, will eventually be available to clinical preceptors and other educators, in order to promote a broad range of leaders within the health professions.
