The MCCLDP is a year-long, professional development program that is designed to refine leadership skills for mid-career faculty. The program offers participants a concrete set of leadership skills that provide the foundation for success in common leadership positions at an academic health center. MCCLDP seeks to enhance an understanding of personal leadership styles, individual strengths and how these impact working on and leading teams. In addition, the program builds awareness of the resources and intricacies of working effectively within the OHSU system.

During the first half of the MCCLDP, participants will be matched with a senior leader at OHSU who will provide mentorship. During the summer months, participants and their mentors will complete mentor/mentee communication projects.

The program’s teaching faculty includes distinguished faculty from the Division of Management, the Career Workplace Enhancement Center, the Relational Leadership Institute and senior healthcare and School of Medicine leaders.

Classes meet one Friday a month from noon–3 p.m. Program runs from January through December.

All classes will be virtual until further notice.
