ACLGIM Leadership Forum

In This Month's Issue

ACLGIM_September_22.jpgWith this issue, we are excited to introduce the newest member of our editorial team: Rita Lee, MD, FACP.  Dr. Lee is a professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. She has a passion for medical education, leadership development, and advocacy. She directs the Health Equity in Action Lab for the Anschutz Medical Campus Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement. Dr. Lee also directs Health Systems Science and Health Equity Education at the School of Medicine. She is core faculty for the ACLGIM LEAD program and previously served as an At-Large SGIM Council Member.
For the March 2023 issue, we seek to highlight two faculty development programs sponsored by the Society.  Dr. Tracey Henry reflects on her time as SGIM Unified Leadership Training in Diversity (UNLTD) Fellow and how the “unlimited” program prepared her to take on more challenges.  Drs. Jennifer Michener and Michael Landry give us their perspectives on being a mentee and mentor in ACLGIM’s LEAD program and how it enriched both of their careers.
As our profession evolves and healthcare becomes more complex, it is increasingly apparent that we need to develop skills to become effective advocates within our own institutions and community.  Advocacy can no longer be compartmentalized outside of medicine, just as physicians can no longer be apolitical, especially in the aftermath of the pandemic.  Drs. Pollard Sullivan and Pasha speak to ways physician advocacy can be incorporated into a resident curriculum and highlight the workshop they presented at SGIM 2022 in Orlando, Florida. Finally, in keeping with our ongoing series of profiling leaders within academic general medicine, Dr. Michele Fang writes about her journey in developing a surgical co-management service and the central role that SGIM played in forging her academic niche and career.
