 “The Fundamentals of Leadership Program offers a wealth of experience through GW SMHS leaders that facilitate lessons in team building, leveraging data, navigating change, self-management and emotional intelligence, and developing your team and culture. My leadership has been profoundly strengthened to advance GW Medical Academic Enterprise goals meaningfully while building wonderful new friendships, collaborations, and mentoring relationships.”
-   Andrew Choi, MD (Medicine & Radiology)
  “The Fundamentals of Leadership Program helped me clarify my role, develop my vision, and gave me practical tools such as assessments to self-reflect and create action plans to address my project.”
-   Rosemary Thomas-Mohtat, MD (Pediatrics & Emergency Medicine)
“This program allowed me to meet and learn from seasoned faculty who have so much knowledge. As a result, I feel much more integrated into the university.”
