Core Rotation: Leadership and Professional Development
Contact: Tara Scott
Being an exceptional family doctor for our communities requires more than just clinical acumen. The 3-year, longitudinal “Leadership and Professional Development” curriculum adds leadership and advocacy to the list of skills required by the “full spectrum” Family Physician. This curriculum allows our exceptional residents to build on the skills they bring to the residency and offers lectures, small-group sessions, self-directed modules and one-on-one mentorship in the skills needed for legislative and community advocacy, community engagement, cultural humility, food justice, scholarship, teaching, practice management, and personal and professional development. Specific attention is paid to developing the skills for influencing policy and decision-makers. SRFMR provides training and support to write advocacy letters to legislators, make legislative visits to policy makers, craft resolutions for the California Academy of Family Physicians, and to write Opinion Editorials or reviews for publication.
