Program Description

The Emory Professional Leadership Enrichment and Development Program (EM-ProLEAD) focuses on enriching leadership skills, enhancing business knowledge, and promoting collaborative efforts across Emory Medicine. EM-ProLEAD is open to all members of Emory Medicine, and is directed by Dr. Harold (Hal) Simon and Dr. Nathan Spell III, in collaboration with leaders from the Goizueta Business School and Emory School of Medicine.

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: EM-ProLEAD sessions are held once a month in 4-hour sessions, typically on a Friday afternoon. Program sessions will feature guest speakers and leaders across Emory.

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

Program Evolution: EM Pro-LEAD evolved from the merging of two successful and popular physician development programs.
