2023 Lecture: The Culture of Academic Medicine through Sign, Story, and Song
Christy Ledford, Ph.D., F.A.C.H.
Culture is a communicative process. It helps group members make sense of information. It promotes a sense of order and logic that symbolically constitutes organization A strong culture creates a common language that builds a shared value system toward a shared vision of the future, whereas a weak culture stunts growth. Signs, stories, and songs can be powerful tools to cultivate a strong academic medicine culture that advances the health and well-being of communities.
