Vermont Interdisciplinary Leadership Education for Health Professionals (VT-ILEHP)
Diverse aspects of leadership are explored and experienced by trainees and fellows (T/F) in VT-ILEHP. All T/F take 3-6 academic graduate credits along with content specific learning modules. They participate in a Research Practicum, learning how to effectively critique the research literature and refine their evidence-based practice. Training in screening and assessment tools are also required as well as the Legislative Training day at the Vermont Statehouse with an optional Disability Policy Seminar in DC. Cultural competency is woven throughout the curriculum and there are two focused diversity conversations each year. All T/F participate in monthly Clinical Leadership Discussions covering a broad range of topics from specific clinical issues, family centered care and cultural competence, issues of access and underserved populations, poverty, to policy and leadership challenges. Trainees and fellows also participate in a Mentorship Workshop led by core faculty members, where the dimensions of mentorship as a leadership role are explored. Each participant develops their Leadership Goal Plan bridging their training to where they want to be as leader upon completion of their fellowship.
