The Boston University Institute for Health System Innovation & Policy brought together a select group of researchers and clinicians for a highly successful two day course focused on the further development of their leadership competencies.
Sponsored by Boston University’s Henry S. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, Questrom School of Business, School of Medicine, and School of Public Health, the course brought together clinicians and researchers from across BU’s Medical Campus. Bringing together such a diverse group allowed participants to directly engage peers from numerous disciplines in robust conversations about leadership and its challenges.
A highlight of the course was a genuine and illuminating discussion with a panel of distinguished leaders. Questions and discussion addressed a wide range of topics: professional challenges and philosophies, change and development during a career, and one’s personal and family life through it all. Our distinguished panelists included:
- Vice Admiral Raquel C. Bono, MD – Director, Defense Health Agency
- Karen S. Guice, MD, MPP – Former Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs
- Howard Koh, MD, MPH – Harvey V. Fineberg Professor of the Practice of Public Health Leadership, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Harvard Kennedy School; former Assistant Secretary for Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
