Dr. James Stoller, a Cleveland Clinic pulmonary/critical care physician who has lectured and written extensively on his specialty, will talk at Ohio University on Feb. 18 as part of the Grover Lecture Series.
His presentation is titled “Preparing the Healthcare Leaders of Tomorrow” and will discuss the rationale for developing leadership skills among healthcare providers. He will explore specific leadership competencies, Cleveland Clinic’s experience with physician leadership development during the past decade, and lessons that can be drawn from non-healthcare sectors.
Stoller is chairman of the Cleveland Clinic Education Institute, which oversees training programs for physicians, nurses and others in the healthcare industry. He also heads the clinic’s Respiratory Therapy section and is a member of its Respiratory Institute, ranked among the nation’s top 3 pulmonary programs.
He has authored more than 15 books and 238 original peer-reviewed reports. He has a special interest in the research and care of individuals with alpha-1 antitryspin deficiency, a condition that raises risks for lung disease, especially among smokers. He also is also a professor of organizational behavior at Case Western Reserve University, where he earned a master’s degree in that field.
Stoller’s talk, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Monday, Feb. 18, at 1 p.m. in W115 Grover Center. A reception with refreshments will follow.
