EXECUTIVE BOARD

 Participation in Penn leadership program approved

Posted on December 31, 2012
 
The Executive Board approved a proposal from the Office of the Executive Vice President for AVMA President-elect Clark Fobian and Assistant Executive Vice President Elizabeth Curry-Galvin to attend the Penn Executive Veterinary Leadership Program this June.
 
The program is hosted jointly by the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and The Wharton School. The four-day program brings together veterinary leaders from private practice, industry, academia, government, and veterinary associations.
 
The OEVP recommendation explained how the curriculum includes leadership and management classes taught by Wharton faculty as well as leaders from various disciplines within the veterinary profession. Special emphasis will be placed on Wharton leadership training specific to veterinarians, including working across boundaries, planning and leading change, and developing a global perspective for the profession that will allow it to have a greater societal impact. Time has also been included for participants to discuss insights and plan actions for advancing veterinary medicine.
 
AVMA alumni of the program include Drs. Larry Kornegay, Mark Lutschaunig, and Ron DeHaven.
