The SUS Leadership Agility Program, designed in collaboration with Kellogg School of Management, equips leaders to advance their careers in academic medicine amidst an ever-changing landscape. The September 22-25, 2019 program leverages Kellogg’s strength in meeting the unique design requirements of the healthcare sector through faculty and practitioners who have instructed thousands of healthcare professionals on their leadership journey. This program is rooted in theory-driven knowledge and concrete strategies that allow participants to put new ideas into action.
The course will take place at the James L. Allen Center, which is located on Northwestern University’s Evanston, Illinois campus. The Allen Center is designed to facilitate peer learning and informal interactions among faculty and participants. During your stay, you will enjoy a private bedroom and bathroom and your commute to the program each morning is only a brief elevator ride or quick walk downstairs from your room. The Evanston Campus is about a 30-minute drive from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
