We read with interest the article by Rouhani et al1 regarding UK medical students’ perceptions of medical leadership and clinical managers. As fourth year medical students, it comes as no surprise to us that a majority of medical students feel that there is a clear dearth of leadership training in the UK medical curriculum. A systematic review by Abbas et al2 on the attitudes of students toward medical leadership corroborates the findings by Rouhani et al, further emphasizing the lack of medical management teaching. As such, we hope to share our own views on how such teaching should be integrated into current medical curricula.
