Shanna Duffy Stryker, MD, of the University of Cincinnati Christ Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program, and NEOMED medical student Haley Coleman have been selected by the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation to receive a 2016 Family Medicine Leads (FML) Emerging Leader Institute Scholarship.
The FML Emerging Leader Institute focuses on identifying residents and students who display leadership potential but may not have served in a leadership role. The Foundation wants to help expand the number of future family medicine leaders and provide training to help equip them for this important work.
The AAFP Foundation received 105 completed application materials; only 30 individuals were chosen to attend the FML Emerging Leader Institute scheduled for Saturday-Sunday, July 30-31, in Kansas City, MO.
The FML Emerging Leader Institute is a multi-part leadership program focuses on three tracks:
- Policy & Public Health Leadership (key strategies to move our specialty into a position to optimize the future health of America—both broadly and within local communities)
- Effective leadership skills in policy and public health
- Improving population health

- Philanthropic & Mission-Driven Leadership (maximizing your impact as a physician leader as you increase your income, gain professional respect and choose among many organizational opportunities for involvement)
- Strategies for becoming a “change agent” in your community
- Your personal mission statement
- Leadership; competencies and skill “gaps”
- Non-profits and your philanthropic goals
- Understanding non-profits.
- Project work over a period of months, following the FML Emerging Leader Institute, that relates to your chosen leadership track
