This year marked a transformative chapter for the Johns Hopkins Medicine Leadership Development Program, which is the only leadership program with participants from both the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Health System. After 22 years, the program underwent a revitalizing transformation to meet the dynamic needs of leaders and to align with organizational strategies, emerging as the renamed JHM Executive Leadership Development Program.
The successful pilot upheld the mission of developing extraordinary leaders who can shepherd an integrated health system into the future. The revamped program introduced various enhancements, including a session hosted by each entity, group coaching, and a roster of guest speakers sharing insights from diverse fields. The enriched curriculum aimed to empower participants with skills vital for both personal growth and the enduring success of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
Interim School of Medicine Dean Theodore DeWeese concluded the Nov. 16 closing session by emphasizing JHM's mission to improve the human condition. He reminded leaders that the way they carry out their work is just as vital as the work itself. Encouraging a focus on patients, self-care, team support, and community service, DeWeese provided guidance for JHM leaders as they continue to grow and make a positive impact. Participants were honored with program completion certificates, marking the end of an impactful chapter in their leadership journey.
The next cohort will begin in January. For more information about the JHM ELDP, contact program director Jennifer Clarke at LDP_Program@jhmi.edu.
