The state of medical leadership and management training for junior doctors

Trainee doctors are very able individuals who are the future of the medical profession, and need to be valued, supported and motivated.

Recent events have dented their morale in the UK and we now need to take collective responsibility for improving the way they feel about their working environment.
Getting trainees involved in leadership will help us to do this.

Medical leaders are in demand, but our current trainees feel poorly equipped to step up to the plate. We know that healthcare outcomes are better when doctors are involved in leadership roles, so we need to find ways of encouraging the development of the leadership skills and competencies of the next generation.

It is reassuring that this report shows that trainees are keen to learn about leadership, and are actively looking to improve their skills.

Medicine is brilliant, and one way to keep it this way is to make sure the next generation are equipped to lead.
