The Michigan Medicine Department of Surgery made a commitment through the Michigan Promise to ensure that the climate and workplace environment enables all individuals an equal and inclusive opportunity to achieve excellence and increase their scope of academic potential throughout the department.
The second session of the Resident Development Program on 10/25/18 introduced two frameworks of leadership theory. We believe that these frameworks, or mental models, are a valuable way to learn leadership concepts that can be applied in practice.
The Michigan Promise supports the Faculty Launch Program, a three-year, team-based program providing individualized mentorship to early-career faculty members. Dr. Andrea Obi reflects on the successes and challenges of her transition from a fellow to a faculty member during her time in the program.
"Under Dr. Mulholland’s leadership, the Department of Surgery offered several 'mini-sabbaticals' to select faculty to further develop their academic pursuits in a given area. I was granted an 8 week block free from clinical activity to work on writing a book on The Foundations of Surgical Ethics ."
