Designed for current and prospective medical school department chairs, deans and associate deans, and others who work with chairs.
OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS
Department chairs are the leadership “glue” that binds together complex academic medical centers. They need the competencies, skills, and approaches that will harness the intelligence, creativity, and commitment of faculty, students, residents, and peers. Forward-thinking institutions recognize that success depends on building relationships based on shared value and purpose.
This completely updated and revised publication in the AAMC’s Successful Medical School Department Chair Series tackles leadership issues and outlines the competencies, skills, and approaches that medical school department chairs need to succeed. Readers will learn how to:

- Discover the three critical characteristics of medical schools and academic health systems that you should embrace as a department chair
- Uncover examples of approaches that medical schools have adopted in defining roles and responsibilities of basic science and clinical department chairs
- Find out why the very notion of leadership must pivot away from leader-as-knower and leader-as-provider towards leader-as inquirer, leader-as-listener and leader-as-influencer
- Access more than 23 questions you should get answers to when you meet with the dean
- Learn the core characteristics of a successful department chair, get a self-assessment worksheet for incumbent chairs and much, much more
