ADGAP and the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) have partnered with Tideswell at UCSF on a National Leadership Development Program. The program is designed for emerging leaders in the field of aging. We recognize that to meet the current and future needs of our society, we require skilled, dedicated, and passionate leaders who are prepared to lead tidal change in aging. Together, we have designed a hands-on, practical program for emerging leaders in aging. We have focused on augmenting and leveraging existing leadership skills relevant to clinical, research, policy, and education. Ideal candidates will be those seeking to transform the field and lead the next generation of health professionals in improving care for older adults. Participants will have an opportunity to perfect their abilities in strategic planning, self-management, influential communication, and results-based management.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-19 cohort of the Emerging Leaders in Aging Scholars Program! Space is limited, so be sure your application is complete before the deadline: Mon., Jan. 8, 2017.
