Attract, position, develop, and advance talent for management and leadership roles.
Emory Healthcare’s Management Development Program seeks to attract, retain and grow talent for potential management and leadership positions. Within three to five years, depending on the individual’s ability to demonstrate the mastery of core competencies, participants will progress through the three phases within the Shared Services or Clinic Operations path, resulting in the opportunity to fill a permanent leadership position upon completion of the program. Participants have the opportunity to join an emerging leader network group, learn from mentors & executive leaders, and participate in continuing professional development.
Within three to five years, depending on the individual’s ability to demonstrate the mastery of core competencies, each candidate will progress through the three phases within the Shared Services or Clinic Operations path, resulting in the opportunity to fulfill a permanent leadership position.
Participants are placed in full-time roles according to their interests and organizational need. The Office of Development Programs works closely with MDP participants and leaders to ensure mutually agreeable and beneficial matches.
Participants work toward mastering a set of core competencies divided into three phases within two different paths. Participants begin in the Coordinator, Operations & Planning position and advance into either a Shared Services path or Clinic Operations path. Advancement to the next level is based on Rater Reliability Sessions where MDP leaders, sponsors, management, and Emory Clinic executives discuss each participant's performance and provide feedback. Participants must demonstrate mastery of competencies in each level to advance.
