Publish date:
Stage 3 trainees leadership

Leadership is intrinsic to the role of a psychiatrist, but the manner this role is undertaken will vary markedly; influenced by many factors, and with varied alignment with the leadership style others provide or seek. This Unit will introduce you to core concepts that need to be considered in developing your own leadership style as a psychiatrist; and undertake a leadership activity that you may use to further develop your leadership skills. Satisfactory completion of the Unit will fulfil the requirements of a formal leadership and management training course, as accredited by the RANZCP NSW Branch Training Committee.
