Kern Fellowship in Interprofessional Leadership

We are delighted to introduce the first cohort of Emory's Kern Fellows in Interprofessional Leadership.  This fellowship, co-sponsored by the Woodruff Health Educators Academy and the Kern Foundation, is a 9-month program for health sciences educators and practitioners who want to be effective change agents in the post COVID era. The program focuses on developing the high-level professional and relational abilities necessary to create interprofessional leadership and professionalism at the individual and organizational level.

 

The number of highly qualified applicants for the Fellowship greatly exceeded our expectations making the selection process competitive.  The participants chosen were judged to be among the most excellent representing diverse disciplines, backgrounds, and rank. We are confident that the Fellows will contribute meaningfully to interprofessional education and collaborative practice at Emory. Congratulations to the 2021 Kern Fellows in Interprofessional Leadership!

 

Sincerely,

William Branch, MD, MACP, Carter Smith, Sr Professor School of Medicine, PI of the Kern Fellowship 

Corrine Abraham, DNP, RN, Associate Professor School of Nursing, Co-PI of the Kern Fellowship
