Medical Leadership

Topic discussion: Medical leadership is defined by a role assigned at a particular point in time rather than a title. It relies on switching between leader and follower depending on individual skillsets but ultimately with a common goal in mind.

Having an academic or administrative background can be useful to cultivate the skills to be a leader but are not necessary for practice. Opportunities to be a leader should be embraced and are diverse, ranging from leading a ward round clinically to mentoring medical students or more junior doctors.
