Stanford Medicine Leadership Academy

The Stanford Medicine Leadership Academy (SMLA) supports Stanford Medicine’s vision by strengthening the capacity of faculty to shape their future through ethical influencing and effective change management.


Participants are nominated by their departmental leadership for inclusion in the SMLA, which is an 18-month commitment. Each participant will lead a complex strategic initiative that prototyped future ways of working and serve as a “leadership laboratory.” Other SMLA activities include customized learning with an executive coach, regular peer consultations, monthly learning sessions and retreats, leadership networking and structured leadership interviews. At the midpoint of the program, participants engage in a comprehensive multi-rated leadership assessment.
