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.

The Medical School and Michigan Medicine Human Resources have partnered together to offer the Leadership Academy which focuses on the development of Michigan Medicine and University of Michigan Campus 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 the University of Michigan. 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. 

For our virtual cohorts, the program is a "video-on," interactive session that will include small group breakout sessions.

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.  

New Michigan Medicine Nomination System!

In order to better manage the Leadership Academy program, we are now using the SurveyMonkey Apply system to collect and review nominations, send out all communications, and collect necessary information from accepted nominees. Given that we are now enrolling ~200 participants a year, it is necessary for all nominations to be submitted through the system in order for us to track participation, ensure enrollment, and send communications efficiently.  We appreciate your efforts in adapting to this small change in the nomination process!


Nominations are now open for Fall 2021 cohorts!

  • Cohort 42: October 4-5 & November 8-9, 2021
  • Cohort 43: October 6-7 & November 10-11, 2021

The sessions will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 2 p.m. each day. The intent is for the participants to attend all four days with the same cohort.

Nominations must be summited by COB Monday, August 23rd.
