You are a leader. You have a group of people in your life whom you can influence. This makes you a leader.
In medicine in general and pediatrics specifically, you often find yourself in positions of leadership that you didn't seek out. You were never taught how to lead outside of the exam or hospital room but you find yourself heading up a clinical team, research department or serving on a committee.
The good news is that good leaders are not necessarily born that way. Everyone can learn skills that can help them lead more effectively.
Pediatric Leadership: The New Medicine is the place to learn those skills. Develop your leadership skills now because you're already a leader somewhere.
