Guest lecture: "Next generation medical leadership"

Prof. Dr. Henry LY Chan (Professor of Medicine and Therapeutics, Director of the Center for Liver Health, Director of Office of Global Engagement, and Associate Dean (External Affairs) of Faculty of Medicine, CUHK)

The landscape of medical practice is rapidly changing. Professional training is moving toward ultra-specialization, which demands multidisciplinary healthcare models to coordinate patient care. Medical practitioners are often the center of ecosystem, working with various stakeholders including nurses, paramedics, researchers, administrators and the civic society. Modern medical practice hence calls for medical leaders who can excel not only in one’s own specialty but also in leading the multidisciplinary team. Leadership nurturing ideally should start at the stage of medical student. This lecture will inspire how a medical student can start the journey of medical leadership, from self-awareness, mindset, concept of a team, mentorship to network. It highlights the importance of integrating leadership education into the curriculum of medical schools.
