Dr. Kolokythas Selected for Prestigious Program
Antonia Kolokythas, D.D.S., M.Sc., associate professor at Eastman Institute for Oral Health and chair of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, has been accepted as a member of the 2018-2019 class of Fellows in the Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) Program.
The program is a year-long part-time fellowship for women faculty in schools of medicine, dentistry, public health and pharmacy. The program is dedicated to developing the professional and personal skills required to lead and manage in today's complex health care environment, with special attention to the unique challenges facing women in leadership positions. More than 1,000 ELAM alumnae hold leadership positions in institutions around the world.
Her selection places her among the very best and brightest of today’s and tomorrow’s women leaders in academic medicine, dentistry, public health, and pharmacy.
Each Fellow works on an Action Project addressing a need or priority of their institution. This project will be developed jointly with a senior staff person to ensure that it will be meaningful and productive for the institution and fellow.
Kolokythas will participate in the ELAM Leaders Forum on May 1 and 2, 2019. The Forum is a unique opportunity for Fellows and their institutional leaders to discuss the wide range of organizational change initiatives addressed during the Fellowship year. The core of the Leaders Forum is a poster symposium showcasing the outcomes of the Fellows’ Institutional Action Projects—the capstone of the ELAM Fellowship year.
