Friday, April 26, 2013
Congratulations Dr. Lorelei Lingard, CERI Director, on receiving the prestigious Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) Fellowship by Drexel University College of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pa. ELAM is a program of Drexel University's International Center for Executive Leadership in Academics focussed on advancing women in medicine and preparing women for senior leadership roles in academic health science institutions.
As part of the one-year Fellowship, Dr. Lingard will be required to conduct an Institutional Action Project developed in collaboration with senior leadership from the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University to address an institutional priority.
"The Fellows' projects not only help them understand the challenges facing academic health centers
and the skills a leader must possess to address these challenges, but also often result in concrete,
positive changes at their institutions" explains Diane Magrane, M.D., director of Drexel's International Center for Executive Leadership in Academics, which supports the program.
Dr. Lingard's Fellowship begins in May with a variety of online assignments and activities that will continue until her completion of the program in May 2014.
