article description
The University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine’s SELECT program was developed to equip medical students withhealthcare leadership skills as they progress through the medical curriculum by providing them with leadership and managementtraining and a curriculum based on emotional intelligence. Medical students spend their pre-clerkship years in Tampa, Florida andthen spend their clinical years at the Lehigh Valley Health Network regional campus in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The authorsdescribe how faculty at the regional campus are involved with student and academic affairs on the main campus, and the process ofhelping students transition from the pre-clinical to clinical years and from Florida to Pennsylvania.
