Young Physician Leaders

Effective healthcare institutions need effective leaders.

The issue of developing leadership qualities among health professionals, however, is often neglected, with many young professions having to learn their leadership skills almost by trial and error as they are handed positions of responsibility.

Although incorporating leadership training programmes into the medical curriculum is lately gaining in importance, in practice too few countries are actually providing such training (See, for example: Health Professionals for a new century: transforming education to strengthen health systems in an interdependent world).

To contribute to building capacity in this area, IAP for Health launched its Young Physician Leaders (YPL) programme in 2011 in partnership with the World Health Summit (WHS) and the M8 Alliance of Academic Health Centres and Medical Universities.

Sessions have been held at each WHS since 2011. In addition, a regional event was organized at the Regional WHS in Singapore in 2013. A 5th year event for alumni was organized in May 2016 at the World Health Assembly.

To date, the IAP for Health YPL network of alumni includes more than 150 leading young professionals, under the age of 40, who were nominated by their national academies. Their details can be found in the dedicated YPL Directory
