Program Description

EM-ProLEAD is open to all members of Emory Medicine, and is directed by Dr. Douglas Morris and Dr. Harold (Hal) Simon, in collaboration with leaders from the Goizueta Business School.

Program Structure

EM-ProLEAD is designed to foster and develop professionals across the entire Emory Medicine enterprise. The focus will be on enriching leadership skills, enhancing business knowledge, and developing strong partnerships across Emory.

Timeline: The EM Pro-LEAD program runs for 10 months, from January to October, hosting 4 hour monthly sessions. Program sessions will feature guest speakers and leaders across Emory. Optional evening lectures with special guests are available throughout the program as well.

Program Topics: The program will feature sessions based on: Leadership Development, Conflict Negotiation, Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Decision Making and Operations.
