Dr. Juan Cendan, assistant dean for simulation, and Dr. Basma Selim, executive director of planning and knowledge management, have been selected as the UCF College of Medicine’s first Leadership Scholars. The new Dean’s Leadership Enhancement Program is a one-year experience intended to enhance the leadership and management capabilities of the college’s faculty and administrative staff. The College of Medicine Enterprise Group selects the scholars, who each conduct a college-wide project they identified as part of their application.
Drs. Cendan and Selim begin their one-year appointment on October 1, working closely with senior college leaders.
Dr. Cendan’s project will involve a study of the involvement of volunteer faculty in the work of the college. Dr. Selim’s project involves facilitation of a second strategic plan for the medical school.
Scholars will participate in Enterprise and other leadership meetings. They will have opportunities for leadership training to enhance their leadership skills and experiences.
“This program is designed to both enhance the leadership experience of the scholars selected and to address a college need through the projects,” said Dr. Deborah German, vice president for medical affairs and dean of the UCF College of Medicine. “I am delighted with the scholars’ desire to learn and lead and hope that as the years unfold, many in the college will have the opportunity to participate.”
