This program is designed to support and equip pediatric academic leaders, those who are long-standing in leadership positions but particularly those emergent, in leadership capabilities. This program to support leadership development is run over an 8 month period. The monthly webinars cover all key aspects of management and leadership, with the material available both synchronously but also asynchronously. There is a parallel leadership practical exercise and report, with a concurrent mentor program to support each participant.
At the completion of this course the participants would be well trained in leadership skills, and awarded a Certificate of Leadership by IPALA.
Online Modules: March - October 2024 with final dates and times to be confirmed soon.
2 sessions per month: theory and reflections (approx. 1.5 hours each)
Attending the academy is free for members of IPALA.
The IPALA leadership academy has given me time to develop skills and reflect on what makes a great leader in pediatrics.
The course gave me the tools & skills to excel in a number of areas of leadership including teaching, research and management.
IPALA offers a platform to network with academic leaders in paediatrics in order to drive and promote multi-generational change.
I use the skills provided by the IPALA leadership academy on a daily basis to guide my trainees and colleagues.
