Design Principles for Building a Leadership Development Program in a Department of Surgery
We have found the program valuable to build leadership skills among enrolled faculty and also as a means to influence culture. In prior publications we described our curriculum design and our formal evaluation of participants’ perspectives on what they learned (or did not learn) from the program.1,2 However, we are often asked about the details of implementing this program, which are not included in this prior published work. This perspective provides several practical design principles (Fig. 1), which we hope will be useful to others aiming to foster faculty leadership development through similar programs.
