The NYU Dentistry Student Leadership Track


Upcoming NYU Dentistry Events

 

 

 

 

Exploring Leadership through Theory and Practice

The Office of Student Affairs & Academic Support Services is dedicated to providing students at the NYU College of Dentistry with intensive leadership training through a series of interactive workshops called The NYU College of Dentistry Student Leadership Track.

This program seeks to equip dental students with the skills, tools, and leadership capacities to effectively lead their peers today, and the dental community into the future.

Deriving from the Leadership Capacities and Competencies developed by the NYU Leadership Initiative, the NYU Dentistry Student Leadership Track will provide students the opportunity to explore personal strengths, think critically about how to lead others, develop techniques to facilitate interpersonal collaboration, and proactively envision and articulate a new future for the dentistry profession.

The NYU Dentistry Student Leadership Track culminates in an opportunity for students to apply for the three-day off-site Leadership Retreat focused on advanced leadership theory and application. This leadership intensive challenges students through individual reflection and explores the impacts of leadership on the dentistry profession.

Spring 2017 - THE 5 PRINCIPLES OF AUTHENTIC LEADERSHIP

This semester the NYU Dentistry Student Leadership Track will profile 5 principles of Leadership, providing students with a holistic vision as to what it takes to lead. Similar to our fall programs, this semester we will introduce each principle with an intimate interview-style session with an incredible leader here at the College of Dentistry. From there our interactive workshops allow students the space to practice each of the 5 principles. Our goal this semester is to expose each student to the dynamic way each of these 5 principles can be realized and practiced in authentic leadership.

Before we can lead others, we must first learn how we lead ourselves. Reflective practice is one of the most important skills a leader can develop when trying to understand how to grow and change. In this session, participants will hear from Dr. Staci Ripkey, a leadership development and change expert, about her perspective on self-leadership and how the “ideal leader” model has evolved throughout history. We will also work through a leadership style inventory that will enable students to practice self-discovery, self-awareness, and expand their capacity to lead.
