The AGS has partnered with Tideswell at UCSF and the Association of Geriatric Academic Programs (ADGAP) on a National Leadership Development Program. The program is designed for emerging leaders in the field of aging. We recognize that, to meet the current and future needs of our society, we require skilled, dedicated, and passionate leaders who are prepared to lead tidal change in aging. Together, we have designed a hands-on, practical program for emerging leaders in aging. We have focused on augmenting and leveraging existing leadership skills relevant to clinical, research, policy, and education. Ideal candidates will be those seeking to transform the field and lead the next generation of health professionals in improving care for older adults. Participants will have an opportunity to perfect their abilities in strategic planning, self-management, influential communication, and results-based management.
