Health Care Management (HCM)
PDW Chair: Brian
Hilligoss, University of Arizona; email@example.com
The Health Care Management Division
has a rich history of innovative and engaging Professional Development Workshop
sessions (PDWs). In 2019, we will convene our consortium for doctoral
students and junior faculty in Boston on Friday, August 9th, followed by a day
of sessions open to all conference participants on Saturday, August 10th.
We seek proposals from AOM members who wish to organize a PDW session for
either the doctoral and junior faculty consortium on Friday or the Saturday
program for all members.
At the consortium on Friday,
experienced faculty will interact with doctoral students and junior
faculty. Appropriate topics will address any of the various demands
placed on emerging scholars. These sessions should encourage networking,
mentoring (both traditional and peer), and the development of new skills or insights
about career options and how to pursue them.
Saturday sessions should have a
broader appeal to conference attendees at various stages in their
careers. The goal with the Saturday workshops is to give attendees the
opportunity to make new personal and intellectual connections that can enhance
their research, teaching, and practice. Examples of past PDW topics
include (but are not limited to) theory building in health care management,
innovative research methods, approaches for bridging across disciplines and
between research and practice, studying new organizational phenomena (e.g.,
accountable care organizations), exploring new teaching methods, career
development, grant writing, international research issues, effective publishing
strategies, and mentoring. We welcome new PDW session ideas and encores of
successful sessions from prior years.
Please indicate the amount of time
needed and detail how that time will be used. The standard HCM session is
90 minutes and 2 hours in length. Only
under exceptional circumstances will PDWs longer than 2 hours be accepted.
The most important selection criteria
for PDWs are the workshop’s potential for addressing participants’ professional
development needs and providing an interactive participant-centered
format. Experiential learning and interaction should be promoted in every
proposal. Additionally, clear and feasible logistical plans and firm
commitments from all presenters are necessary proposal components.
We encourage sessions that
incorporate the 2019 “Understanding the Inclusive
Organization” theme. The theme is relevant for health care
management scholars and practitioners who are concerned with the provision of
health care that is respectful of patient values and cultural traditions and
that is equitable. The theme is also
relevant to research and practice related to the human resources of health care
Individuals interested in organizing
a session during either the emerging scholars consortium or the Saturday PDW
program are encouraged to contact Brian Hilligoss (firstname.lastname@example.org)
as soon as possible to discuss
their ideas. PDW submissions must be submitted online through the Academy
of Management Online website: https://aom.org/annualmeeting/submission/.
The submission system will open late November 2018, and the closing date for
submissions is Tuesday, January 15, 2019, 5 PM
