A Physician Leader is not an ordinary physician, but one who poses these three unique traits - capacity to 'Think Systemic', 'Feel Empathetic', and 'Act Proactive'. Physician leaders are role models for the community. They occupy themselves with not merely with treating illnesses, but they work towards creating health communities by targeting the social determinants of health.
The healthcare problems we face in the 21st century are complex, and solving them requires an interdisciplinary approach. The doctor of the new age needs to be well trained in medicine, art, humanities, social sciences, technology and business. The doctor needs to possess skills normally not taught in medical school. Physician Leadership prepare a doctor to be a community steward and an agent of social change. -
