Implementation of an Innovative Residency Leadership Development Curriculum.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The role of the anesthesiologist in the perioperative environment requires facility in leadership; however, leadership education is not part of the traditional curriculum for anesthesiology trainees. To address this educational gap, we developed a leadership program for anesthesiology residents at an academic medical center to build competency in the areas of teamwork, emotional intelligence, integrity, selfless service, critical thinking, and patient-centeredness, constructs that correlate with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education competencies of interpersonal and communication skills and professionalism. This report describes the design and implementation of the program, including the curriculum, and offers recommendations for implementation at other institutions.
