Moser accepted as ELAM Fellow

Dr. Eileen Moser of Penn State College of Medicine was recently accepted into the Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) program through Drexel University College of Medicine. The program named Moser an ELAM Fellow for its 2013-14 class.

The ELAM program is part of Drexel’s International Center for Executive Leadership in Academics within the Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership. The program is designed to further equip women in leadership positions to advance against the unique challenges they face in the health care environment.

Moser, associate professor of medicine, serves the College of Medicine as the associate dean for clinical education and served from June 2012 to January 2013 as interim vice dean for educational affairs. After graduating from Georgetown University and completing medical school and residency at UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School, Moser obtained her master’s in health professions education at University of Illinois at Chicago. Moser began her position at the College of Medicine in 2010 after serving at UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School and creating an innovative medical curriculum at the proposed Touro University College of Medicine.

As part of the ELAM program, Moser will collaborate with a senior official of the College of Medicine to develop an institutional action project. Moser’s project will focus on medical student education that intersects value-added care, teamwork, and a patient-centered approach.

Through this project and others, Moser and her class will address some of the challenges that accompany leadership roles in academic health centers. Upon completing a one-year fellowship in the program, Moser’s 54-member class will join over 800 alumnae serving in various academic medicine leadership positions around the globe.

In past years, Penn State College of Medicine has seen at least six other alumnae complete the ELAM fellowship, including Dr. Ann Ouyang (1998), Dr. Kathleen Eggli (2004), Dr. Dani Zander (2008), and Dr. Barbara Ostrov (2010).
