Residents and fellows build leadership skills through LEED-R program

Twenty-three residents representing 10 residency programs from Christiana Care and Nemours participated in the fourth annual Leadership Excellence Education for Residents/Fellows (LEED-R) Aug. 15-26. The groundbreaking program teaches foundational leadership skills and exposes residents to system leadership strategy through talks by Christiana Care leaders, and self-awareness and reflection exercises.

“Preparing the next generation of physician leaders to our system and community is well worth the effort,” said Allen Friedland, M.D., FACP, FAAP, program director, Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program.

Dr. Friedland is co-director of LEED-R with Barbara A. Monegan, MA, FABC, director, talent management and leadership development, Institute for Learning, Leadership & Development (iLEAD).
