    image






    Join us for an introduction to restorative practices for building a health learning community by Jay Behel, Associate Dean of Student Affairs at Rush Medical College, and Adrienne Lawson, Director for Institutional Culture/Climate and Community Engagement at University of California Davis Health.

    David Acosta, AAMC Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer will host and moderate the webinar.

    Tier I restorative practices are primarily designed as prevention education to develop conflict communication skills and create "brave spaces" for academic medicine community members to share authentic perspectives on campus or work culture and climate. Restorative circles are used to build community, strengthen relationships, and open lines of communication for problem-solving. In this webinar, Jay and Adrienne will describe Tier I restorative circles and the ways they have used them at UC Davis Health and at Rush.               

    Note: Three tiers of practice will be described during the 4-part webinar series, each of which will be elaborated in subsequent webinars. 

    • In the upcoming RJAM webinar No. 2 of the series, Tier I Community-Building Circles will be discussed, which help develop healthy working relationships and interpersonal competence to address conflict and climate concerns. 
    • RJAM Webinar No. 3: Tier II Restorative Conferences respond to incidents of misconduct or harm by developing plans to repair harm and rebuild trust. Scheduled November 21st @ 2pm EST.
    • RJAM Webinar No. 4: Tier III Reintegration Circles provide community reassurance and social support for someone returning to the community after a period of separation. Scheduled December 10th @ 2pm EST.

  • The Basic Principles of Medical School Funding

    Contains 10 Component(s)

    In this on-demand virtual learning course, participants will be introduced to the basics of funding medical schools.

    image


    This introductory, on-demand virtual learning course provides an overview of medical school funding and is perfect for medical professionals who don’t have a background in finance. This 90-minute course will help learners better understand medical schools’ three missions, how they interrelate, and the costs and funding sources for each. From the funding streams associated with the different missions to the differences in funding depending on organizational structure, and the current challenges medical schools and academic health systems face, learners will come away with a solid grasp on how changes in funding streams affect the work of faculty and staff and how their own work contributes to the financial health of their institution. This interactive series, which contains six modules, is designed to allow learners to proceed at their own pace and think about how these financial topics apply to academic medicine and to their own institution.

    • Pricing: Free.
    • Author: Subject matter experts at the AAMC in consultation with financial experts at multiple medical institutions.
    • Availability: On-demand.

    Feedback Requested
    We are offering this course at no cost for an introductory period because we want your feedback on the course and its format. We are looking for input from people who have no previous knowledge, and from leaders who would like their faculty and staff to be better versed on medical school financing. After you register for and complete the course, please be sure to submit the post-course survey.

    Ann Loehr

    Senior Vice President, Center for Human Capital Innovation

    Anne Loehr thrives at the intersection of leadership, relationships, and connections. Her books, online learning programs, keynotes, and workshops seamlessly blend insights and experiences from Leadership Development and Management Development as she teaches clients how to leverage diversity in the workplace.

    Throughout her career, Anne has lived and learned at the crossroads. She graduated from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Management and moved to Kenya where she owned and managed eco-friendly hotels and safari companies for more than 15 years. East Africa shaped her worldview, challenged her fortitude, and taught her firsthand the power of authentic leadership.

    Anne left the USA to turn around a Kenyan hotel, but she also became fluent in crisis management, facing down lions, tsunamis, rivers that carried away camp generators, and plenty of interpersonal and community conflict. Five hundred employees from different tribes did not just come together and succeed by themselves—Anne’s leadership transformed their lives and work, just as earning their respect and trust transformed her. At the time she couldn’t find top-quality leadership, coaching, and team effectiveness facilitators for her employees, so she educated herself and put her knowledge to good use.

    When she sold her companies and returned to the USA, she brought along her passion for leadership development and executive coaching that helps leaders communicate effectively and deepen their working relationships. Authentic relationships are shaped by courage and respect, and Anne’s work continues to show that transformational leadership can lead to increased employee retention, higher sales, and a healthy bottom line.

    Today’s workplace cries out for new approaches to leadership—change continues at a lightning pace and technology keeps the pedal to the metal. Leaders and managers now contend with 4 generations in the workplace, not to mention a potluck of other cultural differences. Anne was named the “Generational Guru” by The Washington Post, thanks to her unique insights on leveraging the best in each generation and giving her clients an edge in their business.

    Anne’s work has been mentioned and/or featured in Newsweek International, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Elle (Canada), Outside Magazine, CNN Money, The Sunday Times (UK), The Guardian (UK) and other international publications. She writes leadership articles for Fast Company, Huffington Post and Washington Business Journal. She is the Executive Vice President at the Center for Human Capital Innovation (CHCI).
