Difficult Bosses in Medicine

I started writing this course because I believe that better management and better boss behaviour in our hospitals and health services is one of the keys to a more civilized workplace and as a flow on better outcomes for our patients too.

The vast majority of those doctors working in medicine today care about their patients and care about their co-workers.  They mean well.  The problem is that healthcare is one of the most complex industries with lots of human factors at play and most of us simply haven’t been given the right amount of training to deal with this challenge.

Eventually most doctors “grow up” to become a Consultant.  Or what the trainees call “A Boss”.  We normally get there because of our clinical acumen and skills and then we have lots of management tasks thrust upon us for which we have been poorly prepared for.

  • If you are a medical trainee struggling with a difficult boss or wanting to avoid becoming a difficult boss then this course is for you.
  • If you are a senior doctor in medicine and you want to become a better boss then this course is also for you.

I hope to build this course with the input of the community so we can all learn how to have better empathy for our bosses and be better bosses ourselves.
