Leadership competencies are critically important for physicians to navigate clinical practice, research, and administrative roles. Yet leadership competencies, which are different than clinical or scientific competencies, are not included in traditional medical curricula. Some would even argue that the frequent “command and control” leadership style seen in health care creates a “hidden curriculum,” which handicaps physicians who remain unexposed and unaware of the fuller palate of leadership competencies and style. This course reviews some essential leadership competencies for emerging physician leaders. Specifically, the course will use an experiential and highly participatory approach to develop and awareness of the attributes of an effective leader, the features of an effective team, and a useful approach to conflict management.

The following topics will be facilitated: leadership, collaboration, and change management; teambuilding and teamwork in healthcare; conflict resolution; and negotiation skills.
