Reckelhoff begins exec leadership program
Dr. Jane Reckelhoff, professor of physiology and director of the Women's Health Research Center, was accepted into a yearlong Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine Program at Drexel University's College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pa.
One of 54 women in this year's program, Reckelhoff started online assignments and community building activities in May. Fellows begin the first of three weeklong, in-residence sessions when they meet for the first time in Pennsylvania in September.
Fellows also complete an Institutional Action Project, designed to address a strategic institutional priority. Projects not only help participants understand challenges facing academic health centers and the skills a leader must possess to address these challenges, but also often result in changes at their institutions.
More than 800 program alumnae worldwide serve in leadership positions, including department chairs, research center directors, deans and college presidents, as well as chief executives in health-care and accrediting organizations.
