The American College of Cardiology’s Leadership Development Program offers a half-day intensive live course that addresses various skills and knowledge in cardiovascular leadership. The program design provides you with a broad understanding of leadership styles and skills. This program addresses diverse perspectives on critical leadership challenges while also providing an awareness of concepts and techniques relevant to leading effectively within one’s own healthcare institution. The ACC often draws upon those who complete this program for future leadership roles within the College.
While strengthening leadership skills is a primary objective of the training course, the program also leverages having international leaders in the same room as an opportunity to exchange ideas and best practices. Lead by past president of the ACC, Dr. William Zoghbi, this interactive discussion allows attendees to provide special insight into their country’s healthcare and leadership challenges. The program serves as a platform for emerging leaders in the cardiovascular community to gain a deeper understanding of the varied challenges facing the College’s ever-growing international community. By connecting these emerging leaders, the program facilitates the building of professional relationships and creates new opportunities for collaboration that defy geographical distance.
