Leadership Academy


This program is an accelerated 4-day immersive learning experience that draws on the participant’s 360° assessment of leadership competencies and skills. Cohort dates are listed below.

The Medical School and Michigan Medicine Human Resources have partnered together to offer the Leadership Academy which focuses on the development of Michigan Medicine leaders. The mission of the Academy is to accelerate the development of leaders so that they can reach higher levels of success and produce better results for Michigan Medicine.  The Academy accomplishes this by developing essential competencies and skills, introducing new approaches and global best practices, and inspiring personal commitment to leadership development. The Leadership Academy’s curriculum focuses on 3 major themes; Leading Self, Leading Others and Leading in a Complex Organization. The first two days concentrate on self and teams and the last two days on the organization. The Leadership Academy involves interaction among peer leaders in our organization; leveraging a dynamic mix of concepts, activities, practical tools, self-assessments, case studies, and team learning. 

Participants are currently selected through a nomination process. If you have a leader that reports to you whom you wish to nominate, please complete the nomination form for an upcoming cohort.
