Leadership Development Program

The Ohio State University Internal Medicine Residency Program believes that a great physician is someone who has excellent patient care skills and exemplary leadership skills. In order to help residents develop all of the skills necessary to be a great physician, we have created the Leadership Development Program.

Development of the program is based on four guiding principles:

  1. All physicians are leaders.
  2. Strong leadership skills make us better doctors and improve patient care.
  3. Leadership skills can and should be taught.
  4. Creating a culture that embraces leadership training is a critical step towards preparing physicians to lead complex, multidisciplinary teams.

The Leadership Development Program will provide educational programming that is meaningful and applicable to residents' everyday practice. Through this programming, residents will be able to:

  1. Describe how effective leadership is important in their practice and how their personal leadership skills impact patient care.
  2. Recognize their personal leadership skills and leadership preferences so that they can use them most effectively in different situations.
  3. Utilize new leadership skills in different settings so that they can more effectively cope with leadership challenges.

OSU is committed to leading the way in advancing the quality and effectiveness of residency education. As one of the few programs in the country to provide an integrated leadership training curriculum within the residency program, we will continue to provide residents with unique experiences and opportunities that will allow them to become excellent physicians.
