The delivery of health care in today’s world is increasingly complex. Historically, medical training has centered exclusively on developing clinical and research
competence in the medical sciences. However, as healthcare is being delivered more and more by integrated teams and organizations, medical education must teach
physicians core competencies of working in and leading healthcare organizations. This workshop is designed to educate residents in leadership, collaboration and
communication in healthcare organizations. The course syllabus and bibliography are developed from studies specific to the health care industry that focus on the role
of leadership and the functioning of teams within healthcare organizations. Each session will follow a case-based curriculum with a component of didactic lectures on
content related to the published literature on leadership in health care organizations. This will be complemented by small and large group experiential learning exercises
when time permits. The workshop will serve as an introduction to these concepts and an extensive bibliography for further reading will be provided.
Curriculum Topics: The curriculum will provide an opportunity for residents to undertake a guided exploration of the following areas of study:
- The characteristics of effective leaders in health care
- Emotional intelligence
- Leadership models
- Theories of organizational learning and their practical application in health care
- Basic theories on how to change and improve organizations
