Congratulations! 2021 Duke School of Medicine Faculty Leadership Program Participants. Headshots of 5 faculty members.

Congratulations to the five Duke Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences faculty members who have been selected to participate in three School of Medicine leadership development programs!


Jeremy Grove, PhD, and Keisha-Gaye O'Garo, PsyD, have been selected to participate in ADVANCE-UP (Academic DeVelopment Advocacy Networking, Coaching and Education for Underrepresented Populations). ADVANCE-UP is a year-long program that provides in-depth opportunities for academic development, mentoring, and networking for faculty from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds.

The program aims to address the challenges that underrepresented faculty encounter in academic medical centers and ultimately seeks to create a network of scholars that will enhance the sense of community among underrepresented faculty, foster timely promotion and increase representation in leadership positions.


Ernestine Briggs-King, PhD, and Kim Johnson, MD, have been selected to participate in ALICE. ALICE is a yearlong leadership development program for mid-career women faculty in leadership roles. The program provides instruction in key leadership competencies and a unique peer-mentoring experience with women from across the School of Medicine.


Sarah Kelleher, PhD, was selected to participate in LEADER. The Leadership Development for Researchers (LEADER) Program is designed for junior faculty who are leading a research group and driving their own research agenda. The course provides insight into leadership and team building as well as direction on how to develop and manage a scientific laboratory or research program, how to improve productivity, and how to harness creativity and innovation.

The program was developed to bridge the gap between the scientific expertise that led individuals to a career in academic medicine, and the management skills that will be required to succeed as the leaders of small business units.
