The 3 reasons why physicians often lack leadership training

A recent Harvard Business Review article detailed the importance of leadership training for physicians.

Here are the key takeaways:

1. Despite the fact many physicians take on leadership responsibilities over the course of their career, physicians are often not taught how to lead or rewarded for demonstrating good leadership skills.

2. There are few avenues available to physicians to learn basic leadership skills, despite the fact many resident physicians will oversee new interns at the organization they work for.

3. Medical school and residency programs should modify their curriculum to include leadership skill development.
