Projects serve as opportunities for applied training in hands-on, non-didactic environments. Projects involve collaborative work on strategic initiatives aimed at facilitating improvement or enhancing growth. They serve as vehicles for developing engagement as a muscle for future collaboration. Working in cross-functional teams or in dyads, participants have the opportunity to apply the leadership skills by improving upon strategic, operational or clinical issues, and drive tangible results for a return on investment.

While the work load for this project was a challenge, it was most rewarding. The driving force to keep the project moving forward was the impact we envisioned the new supportive care clinic to have on patient care. I will admit, I was exquisitely proud when we checked in our first patient and saw the project unfold into reality. Even more rewarding was the positive comments we received from the patients and the impact we are seeing on the quality of care our patients are experience.
