What Our Alumni Say

  • It was comforting to know that our issues and challenges are similar and not unique to my school or profession. I was particularly encouraged to learn techniques on academic leadership from my peers in the health profession."

    Dr. Karla Georges, The University of the West Indies School of Veterinary Medicine

  • I am a believer in lifelong learning and regularly take steps to improve my understanding of leadership.  CAAMP provided an intensive three-day workshop with an incredibly diverse group of participants from many professions and disciplines.  This approach was timely and relevant from the lens of inter-professional education and practice.  This experience has given me a much clearer picture of the challenges these professions are faced with and thereby gave me a better understanding of how that impacts our practice."

    Dr. Holly Diesel, Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College
