Leaders in Academic Medicine Program (LAMP)

Leaders in Academic Medicine Program

The Leaders in Academic Medicine Program (LAMP) is an exceptional opportunity for you, as a Texas A&M School of Medicine faculty or staff member, to invest in your personal and professional development. Rooted in the Texas A&M University core values, this program will equip you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to lead and manage within the rapidly changing healthcare landscape. 

You'll gain a foundation for effective leadership, helping you to promote collaboration, innovation, and excellence in academic medicine, patient care, research, and service. 

Program Design and Competencies  


LAMP is explicitly tailored to our needs as academic medicine professionals, providing you with the tools you need to excel in leadership roles. As part of a close cohort, you'll build a collaborative community across the School of Medicine. Throughout the program, you'll gain a deep understanding of the challenges facing academic medicine leaders today and how to navigate them successfully. By participating in a cohort-based program, you'll also have the opportunity to network with leaders and peers across Medicine, learning from their experiences and building lasting relationships. 

The essential skills for LAMP participants were identified through surveys, in-person interviews, and workshops with the Texas A&M Center for Executive Development, Medicine faculty, and staff. The program uses a blend of workshops, self-reflection, coaching, and group discussion to help you develop skills in nine key areas.

  • Emotional Intelligence  
  • Growth Mindset 
  • Strategic Thinking  
  • Creating High-Performance Teams 
  • Conflict Resolution and Dealing with Difficult Behaviors
