Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) – has a number of short professional development programs with different aims.

There are a few that I know about that are longstanding and have good reputations.
- Organizational Leadership in Academic Medicine for New Associate Deans and Chairs
- Minority Faculty Leadership Development Seminar
- Early Career Women Faculty Professional Development Seminar
- Mid-career Women Faculty Professional Development Seminar
Harvard School of Public Health Executive and Continuing Professional Education. Access the overall programs catalog. Some of the programs I am familiar with are:
Harvard School of Graduate Education. The overall catalog for The Harvard Institutes of Higher Education Programs. These are excellent if you want a broader view of leadership in academia. There are two main programs, long-standing and well-regarded, and taught in the Harvard case manner. Others are focused at the top leadership level:
American Council on Education (ACE). The long-standing ACE Fellows program has produced many university and college executive leaders.
Alpha Omega Alpha. Fellow in Leadership.
