Improving leadership and management education in medical school
Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London, London, UK
The article by Rouhani et al1 regarding medical students’ perception and attitude toward medical leadership brings great interest. Alongside clinical competency, a doctor must also be able to communicate as a leader2 and negotiate and use resources efficiently in an over-stretched National Healthcare Service (NHS). As an ambassador of the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM) and having completed an intercalated degree in health care management, I write to share my experiences and propose implementation methods of medical leadership into the curriculum.
