Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine Leadership is Needed Now More than Ever
In a study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, Ayla R. Pelleg, MD, et al. found that geriatrics and palliative medicine physicians obtain leadership roles quickly after fellowship, even without formal leadership training. Study participants reported that they often felt unprepared, learned “on the job,” and sought out additional leadership training. The authors concluded that early leadership training is needed to prepare fellowship graduates for the pressing demands of accelerated leadership.
