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.
