Today’s academic leaders are faced with the challenging task of disseminating and analyzing the ever-growing amount of information regarding the burgeoning field of academic medicine. To assist institutions in their executive leadership initiatives, our Academic Advisory Council-MH is pleased to support, assist and collaborate with institutional leaders and search committees to recruit executive leaders, including department chairs, institute and center directors, deans, and presidents. AAC-MH offers a range of services that are designed to be shaped and modified to specific institutional needs and capabilities. For example, the AAC-MH can support and work collaboratively with institutional search committees, complementing or synergizing with their activities or can take on full-service responsibility for a search defining the position description, developing a broad and diverse candidate pool, assessing and evaluating candidates, recommending a slate of candidates and working with institutional leaders to select the successful leader. With the recruitment of a new leader, the AAC-MH also offers short or long-term executive coaching and mentoring services ranging from over-the-phone consultation to in-person meetings. Services can include ongoing guidance and thought leadership that extends through both the planning and implementation process for a variety of initiatives.
