The ASNC Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a three-year mentorship program developed to prepare future leaders of the society and the field of nuclear cardiology.ASNC LDP participants will be paired with an ASNC mentor and leader who will provide guidance through the program and in their early career. In addition, the LDP participants join in a series of live webinars focused on the basics in furthering ASNC's missions in advocacy, guideline development, and education. The participants receive training in how to cultivate important leadership skills such as effective presentation tactics, strategic planning, consensus building, and media training.
"... LDP is what each participant makes of it, but learning to be an advocate for policies that enhance patient care, helping to shape our clinical standards and working alongside the field's pioneers … that's what we're aiming to offer today's young members so they'll become tomorrow's leaders"-2017 ASNC President and former LDP participant Raymond Russell, III, MD, PhD, MASNC
