Program for Academic Leadership Alumni

PAL Alumni

"As a PAL participant and learner, I found this 3-year experience invaluable and unlike any other professional education program. Not only did I acquire knowledge and skills essential for effective leadership, but the program allowed me to make valuable contribution to my home institution with support of the top physiatric talent in the country. Our department has conducted a year-long faculty development program in the area of teaching and learning which already changed the learning climate, and created a structured research mentorship program for our residents. Neither would be possible without guidance and support I have received through PAL. Additionally, after each program installment I found myself changing the way I approach my work as an educator, an administrator, and a clinician. The program stimulated me to seek education and additional training in the areas where I was lacking- conflict negotiation, business, and finance, to name a few. AAP investment in this program is truly remarkable!"

"PAL is just one of the efforts by the AAP to promote excellence in the world of academic physiatry. I would recommend this program to any physiatrist who is a few years after board certification and is interested in pursuing an academic career. Whether the interest lies on the research, teaching or administration side of the academic enterprise, the skills taught, the broad vision and the networking make this program extremely valuable."

"Participating in PAL is a wonderful opportunity to learn about academic departments from a leadership perspective. Exposure to the different functions of an academic department from a variety of chairs, deans, and other leaders in the field has given me new appreciation into the complexities of managing a department: insights I likely would not have attained as a junior faculty member. Also, I'm proud to have been included with a great group of colleagues who were likewise interested in becoming future leaders in academic PM&R. It's fun to network with them and senior academics. I throughly enjoyed and learned so much from my experiences in PAL."
