Q: What attributes will you seek in our future Academy leaders? What experience do you have that will aid in selecting leaders that will advance the mission of the Academy?

Gordon J. Siegel, MD

Honesty and integrity are two essential attributes that our Academy leaders must possess and promote. Beyond that, it is extremely important to select individuals who are well aware of what is going on in today’s medical world and who are forward thinking, to enter the future on a solid, educated, and prepared footing. Leaders should reach out and hear our entire membership in order to formulate the Academy goals in a successful manner that promotes the outstanding performance of our Academy.

I have had the pleasure to experience the roads of progress that our Academy has travelled for more than two decades. I have seen and learned to understand what appears to be the best means of governing. I am in private practice but have had the very fortunate experience of being part of the faculty of Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine. I have also served in private, non-academic institutions. I have been acquainted with numerous Academy leaders in both the academic and private worlds. I totally recognize that there is great value in both arenas. I am prepared to not only pick qualified candidates, but candidates who truly care and will be able to work well together.
