Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine® Leaders Forum

April 26 – 27, 2017
ACE Conference Center, Lafayette Hill, PA

The ELAM Leaders Forum is a unique opportunity for fellows and their institutional leaders to discuss the wide range of organizational change initiatives addressed during the fellowship year. The core of the Leaders Forum is a poster symposium showcasing the outcomes of the fellows' Institutional Action Projects (IAPs) — the capstone of the ELAM fellowship year.

The symposium:

  • Highlights the fellows' accomplishments and leadership activities.
  • Provides a space for content-rich interaction between fellows and guests.
  • Supports collaboration on organizational change efforts across institutions.
  • Demonstrates the overarching impact of ELAM Institutional Action Projects on organization improvement.

Additional Forum activities include a deans' breakfast, leader-to-leader dialogues, a graduation ceremony with speaker, and a reception and dinner.
