Woodruff Leadership Academy

Featured in Academic Medicine, March 2007 and established in 2003, the Woodruff Leadership Academy (WLA) combines a program of classroom sessions, off-site team projects, and weekend retreats to motivate professionals and managers within The Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center to develop, exercise, and strengthen individual leadership potential. Each year's class of fellows is an extraordinary group of researchers, physicians, educators, and administrators.

The WLA is designed to maximize opportunities for fellows to discover new approaches and capabilities necessary to thrive in an academic health center. This program develops managerial and technical expertise, as well as interpersonal, communications, and presentation skills necessary to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing health care landscape.

The Woodruff Leadership is made possible by support from the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center Fund.
