It provides the essentials that a current or prospective leader requires in order to lead themselves and others, as well as to lead positive change within their program or institution.

Program Vision: Education, research and service work, the three pillars of health sciences schools, can be improved through a better understanding of leadership, social change, and organizational psychology.
Program Mission: To contribute to the effectiveness of exemplary leaders and scholars who will advance the field of health professions education in order to improve health care locally, regionally, and internationally.
Program Goals:
