What is a Feagin Leadership Scholar?




The John A. Feagin Jr., MD Leadership Program and Endowment has been created to honor John A. Feagin, Jr.  Dr. Feagin’s dedication to developing ethical leaders of character is the inspiration for this effort. This program will benefit leadership education at Duke University Medical Center.

Funds from the endowment are being used to provide a foundation in leadership education to the Duke University community and outside organizations with a special emphasis on opportunities for fellows, residents and third year medical students.

Through this program, a strong community of leaders has been developed to mentor and enhance leadership development among the Feagin Medical Scholars.  Additionally this program serves to create an environment of shared learning where emerging leaders contribute new ideas and direction to future development of Feagin Leadership Scholars.

The Feagin Leadership Scholars participate in a ten-month curriculum that includes: Defining Personal Leadership and Values; and Mentoring, Difficult Conversations, Networking and Executive Presence.  Additionally, the Scholars receive individual coaching and work on a team project that will be presented at the Feagin Leadership Forum each year.

The Feagin Leadership Scholars are comprised of a talented and diverse group of individuals. They include fellows and residents and third year medical students.
