Developing the Next Generation of Leaders

“I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.” —Ralph Nader

The ACP has a program for Early Career Physicians called the Leadership Enhancement and Development Program (LEAD). Participation in this program helps to provide physicians with the skills and experiences needed to be a successful leader. Involvement in a series of qualifying activities makes one eligible to receive the LEAD certificate; these include such things as attaining Fellowship in the ACP, attending leadership activities at Internal Medicine 2014, participating in chapter and national committees, getting involved in advocacy activities and demonstrating leadership by involvement at the community level. The Connecticut Chapter wants to support and encourage its future leaders. Please visit the ACP website to learn more about the qualifications for a LEAD certificate, and contact me if you have an interest in participating in chapter committee or advocacy activities.
