  • The Evolving Role of the Department Chair - October 20

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 10/20/2021 at 4:30 PM (EDT)

    During this webinar, experts from Sullivan Cotter will provide a national picture on emerging trends in the role of Department Chair.

    The role of the Department Chair continues to evolve as the rapidly changing health care environment shapes how academic health systems are responding to operational and financial pressures. In fully integrated academic health systems, roles for Department Chairs are evolving to be more aligned with the system’s executive leadership team. Given a Department Chair’s influence on health system priorities, Department Chairs are being asked to take an enterprise viewpoint while working collaboratively to support health system priorities, such as population health, quality outcomes and financial sustainability. In these elevated roles, Department Chairs must balance the needs of their respective Department, the School of Medicine and Faculty Practice Plan – aligning these priorities with health system goals and the academic mission while working to support interdisciplinary care. As a result, the rewards program for Department Chairs are evolving to support successful outcomes. During this webinar, experts from SullivanCotter will provide a national picture on the role of Department Chair and emerging trends in compensation design. In addition, leaders from University of Utah Medical Group and Boston University School of Medicine will provide perspectives on how the Department Chair role has evolved at their institutions.

    This webinar is sponsored by the Group on Faculty Practice (GFP) and open to all AAMC constituents (employees of AAMC member institutions) who are interested in attending.

  • Jordan J. Cohen Fireside Chat - Humanism: A Hidden Catalyst for Medical Innovation - October 7

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 10/07/2021 at 3:00 PM (EDT)

    Join us for a fireside chat to explore how our most human experiences can be a hidden catalyst for medical innovation.

    One of the common threads of humanity is the likelihood that we all experience some type of adversity in our lives. Whatever our challenges and experiences may be, they do not have to define us. If we allow ourselves to examine and integrate these experiences, they can deeply inform our work as scientists and healers and give us insights that we would not otherwise have had. 

    Join Dr. Burke Harris and past Jordan J. Cohen lecturer, Dr. Rana Awdish, for a fireside chat to explore how our most human experiences can be a hidden catalyst for medical innovation.

    Rana Awdish, MD

    Dr. Rana Awdish is the author of In Shock, a critically-acclaimed, bestselling memoir based on her own critical illness. She is a sought-after public speaker, delivering inspirational keynote addresses to groups ranging from professional medical societies, to members of Congress, to organizations combatting homelessness.

    A pulmonary and critical care physician, she serves as the current Director of the Pulmonary Hypertension Program at Henry Ford Hospital. She also serves as Medical Director of Care Experience for the System, where she has integrated compassionate communication strategies and Narrative Medicine practice into the curriculum. 

    Dr. Awdish received the Schwartz Center’s National Compassionate Caregiver of the Year Award in 2017. She was named Physician of the Year by Press Ganey in 2017 for her work on improving communication and received the Critical Care Teaching Award in 2016. She has been inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society and the Gold Humanism Honor Society.

    Nadine Burke Harris, MD, MPH, FAAP

    Surgeon General

    State of California

    Dr. Nadine Burke Harris is an award-winning physician, researcher and advocate dedicated to changing the way our society responds to one of the most serious, expensive and widespread public health crises of our time: childhood trauma. She was appointed as California’s first-ever Surgeon General by Governor Gavin Newsom in January 2019.

    Dr. Burke Harris’ career has been dedicated to serving vulnerable communities and combating the root causes of health disparities. After completing her residency at Stanford, she founded a clinic in one of San Francisco’s most underserved communities, Bayview Hunters Point. It was there that Burke Harris observed that, despite the implementation of national best-practices for immunizations, asthma, obesity treatment and other preventive health measures, her patients still faced outsized risks for poor health, development and behavioral outcomes.

    Drawing in research from the CDC and Kaiser Permanente, Dr. Burke Harris identified Adverse Childhood Experiences as a major risk factor affecting the health of her patients. In 2011, she founded the Center for Youth Wellness and subsequently grew the organization to be a national leader in the effort to advance pediatric medicine, raise public awareness, and transform the way society responds to children exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress. She also founded and led the Bay Area Research Consortium on Toxic Stress and Health, to advance scientific screening and treatment of toxic stress.

    She currently serves as a government liaison for the American Academy of Pediatrics’ National Advisory Board for Screening and sat on the board of the Committee on Applying Neurobiological and Socio-behavioral Sciences From Prenatal Through Early Childhood Development: A Health Equity Approach for the National Academy of Medicine.

    Her work has been profiled in best-selling books including “How Children Succeed” by Paul Tough and “Hillbilly Elegy” by J.D. Vance as well as in Jamie Redford’s feature film, “Resilience”. It has also been featured on NPR, CNN and Fox News as well as in USA Today and the New York Times. Dr. Burke Harris’ TED Talk, “How Childhood Trauma Affects Health Across the Lifetime” has been viewed more than 6 million times. Her book “The Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity” was called “indispensable” by The New York Times.

    Dr. Burke Harris is the recipient of the Arnold P. Gold Foundation Humanism in Medicine Award presented by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Heinz Award for the Human Condition. She was named one of 2018’s Most Influential Women in Business by the San Francisco Business Times.

    Jeffrey R. Balser, MD, PhD

    President & CEO, Vanderbilt University Medical Center

    Dean, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine

    As the medical center’s chief executive since 2009, Dr. Balser has guided extensive clinical service and facilities growth, expanding patient visits to nearly 3 million per year and annual revenues to over $5 billion (fiscal 2021). VUMC now supports the world’s highest volume cardiac transplantation program, the Mid-South’s largest NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, and the Southeast’s largest provider-led health affiliated network with over 60 hospitals and 6000 clinicians. Over two decades he has spearheaded an agenda to bring personalized medicine from research concepts to bedside care, integrating advances in informatics, personalized medicine, clinical trials, and precision genomics. The NIH Data and Research Support Center for the US Precision Medicine “All of Us” Program now resides at VUMC.

    In 2016 Dr. Balser guided an historic restructuring process with Vanderbilt University (VU), legally and financially separating VUMC through a $1.2B public debt issuance, forming an independent, not-for profit corporation that continues its historic academic affiliation with the university. He has guided acquisitions growing VUMC from two to five regional campuses, including seven hospitals with over 1700 inpatient beds and 170 outpatient facilities, while also expanding the employed medical practice to over 3000 clinicians, the largest in the Mid-South. VUMC houses one of the nation’s distinguished medical education programs with over 1100 residents and fellows training in over 150 different specialties. The School of Medicine ranks among the nation’s top ten NIH grant recipients, with over $700M in annual research costs supported by government, foundation, and industry sponsors.

    In 2008 Dr. Balser was elected to the National Academy of Medicine; under the 1863 Congressional charter, the academies advise the nation on science, technology, and health. Since 2018 he has been a member of the organization’s governing council.  He served as chair for the 2020, 50-year anniversary scientific sessions, and recently co-authored the academy’s sector review on healthcare delivery organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic. He serves on the boards of VUMC, Tulane University, the Center for Medical Interoperability, and the Nashville Healthcare Council, and was a director of the public company Varian Medical Systems until its recent acquisition by Siemens.

    Dr. Balser undertook internship on the Osler Medical Service, residency training in anesthesiology, and fellowship training in cardiac anesthesiology and in critical care medicine at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. He joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 1995, where he practiced cardiac anesthesiology, ICU medicine, and led an NIH-funded research program aimed at the genomic underpinnings of cardiac rhythm disorders. He returned to Vanderbilt in 1998, was appointed chair of the Department of Anesthesiology in 2001 and became VUMC’s chief research officer in 2004. In 2008/09, he was named Dean of the school of medicine and Vice Chancellor for health affairs with executive responsibility for all medicine-related educational, research, and clinical service programs, responsibilities that continue since 2016 in his role as President and CEO of VUMC and dean of the school of medicine at VU.
