Primary Care Training Enhancement

Session Overview - SPARK (Success, Perception and Achievement through Resident Knowledge) Leadership Program: Session 1

This session will be the first in a series of 4 focusing on leadership skills for resident physicians. Resident physicians, particularly as they transition into seniors and beyond, need to lead various work/multi-disciplinary teams. Residents/physicians are often not taught how to be an effective leader. Leadership skills are teachable and can be improved with deliberate practice.

The sessions will encompass the following topics:

  1. Introduction to Leadership/Leadership Styles

  2. Emotional Intelligence/Core Values

  3. Communication and Conflict Management

  4. Team Building and Leading Change

Session Length: 50-55 minutes

Prerequisite(s): None

Learning Objectives

  • Explain rationale for residents to gain leadership skills

  • List characteristics of effective leaders

  • Identify leadership skills and those which can be improved

  • Describe different leadership styles

  • Identify opportunities to incorporate skills learned into practice
