We are committed to promoting global collaboration in the pediatric academic community that will advance the health and wellbeing of children and youth. To achieve this as an outcome, we support academic pediatricians and those in research and education through a community of practice, leadership, education and research support. Through the activities of IPALA we support improved quality and impact related to standards in education, research, clinical practice and policy with specific focus on collaborative support across geographic and socio-economic regions of the world. We work to more effectively link the global academic expertise and resources with the preventive, promotive and therapeutic best practices that countries are working to achieve. Our success will come through collaborative activities and through supporting each other in working toward these goals
There is a need to support pediatric academic leaders, both those who are long-standing but particularly those emergent, in leadership capabilities. The IPALA Leadership Academy has been developed and is running a program to support leadership development. This leadership program is run over an 8- month period. The program material is available both synchronously but also asynchronously. There would be a parallel leadership practical exercise and report, with a concurrent mentor program to support each participant.
Information and practical advice on education tools, assessment expertise, curriculum development within a child/pediatric context.
Enabling academics and teachers of child health/pediatric skills and competencies to learn of latest developments, and to be assisted in their own teaching and assessments.
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. There would be 8 months of a monthly webinar covering 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 be awarded a Certificate of Leadership by IPALA.
