Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Today's medical students are tomorrow's leaders. As leadership training becomes incorporated into undergraduate medical education, there is a need for validated educational models that are both effective and replicable.

METHODS:

Between April 2017 and October 2017, groups of 15 to 20 medical students participated in sessions with an exemplary physician leader incorporating a guided interview format and discussion about her or his career. Prepared questions ensured leadership domains were covered. The program was evaluated using a post-session survey.

RESULTS:

One hundred percent of survey respondents (N = 58) reported that the session was a good use of time. Seventy-eight percent felt more prepared to lead a team; 93% learned specific ways to improve their leadership skills.

DISCUSSION:

This leadership program is a unique model to provide leadership education to medical students that is both effective and replicable.
