Abstract

The increasing complexity of healthcare emphasizes the need for continued physician leadership and leadership training. This study aims to determine baseline attitudes toward the perceptions and utility of a leadership development curriculum (LDC) for radiation oncology (RO) residents. A novel longitudinal LDC was implemented for RO residents at our institution from 2018 to 2019. Prior to the curriculum, current and past residents in our institution’s RO residency program were surveyed on their attitudes towards leadership in healthcare, emotional intelligence competencies, and leadership training interests. After the completion of the LDC, a post-curriculum survey was forwarded to current residents. The response rate was 84% (21 of 24) for the baseline survey and 90% (9 of 10) for the post-curriculum survey. Having a leadership training curriculum during residency was rated as extremely useful, with top training interests involving leading clinical teams, effective communication strategies, and conflict management. After the LDC, the residents reported high satisfaction with the curriculum and utilization of leadership training into their daily work. Our LDC demonstrates significant potential to engage trainees and improve their leadership skills at the graduate medical education level.
