Testamonial:
Would you recommend the MLD course to others? Do you believe leadership
skills should be taught to medical professionals?
“Yes and yes. I believe leadership skills are learned, and for those who have access to
those skills it is a great benefit. As someone who does not have family in the medical field,
it was invaluable to hear the stories of some leaders in the field and reflect on and discuss
many aspects of leadership that will serve me well as I progress through training and in
shaping my career.”
“Yes, and YES! Simply talking about it prompts reflection, and makes each of us better
leaders. This course coincided with a lot of challenging situations in my own
academic/work life, and it was a great compliment to my own personal development since
it forced me to take some time and just think. I also think it is important for students to see
leaders who did not necessarily know which way was up at some point in their lives. In
this way the course also foster humanity and humanism, and we cannot be doctors
without that.”
“YES YES YES. Leadership skills should def be taught to medical professionals. MDs are
kind, hard working, compassionate individuals but sometimes in my experience I have
seen that they do not take charge and try to make a change as much as their skills should
allow them to.”

Stephanie Carr: Hand Hygiene – Follow the Leader?

Hypothesis:




To determine whether the hand hygiene habits of attending physicians or
the first person entering/exiting the patient room influenced the compliance
of other physician team members.
Method:

Four medical students individually shadowed physician teams
during morning rounds and measured hand hygiene compliance
Results:

Physician team members were more likely to wash their hands
upon entering and exiting patient rooms if their attendings washed
(75% v. 29%; p < 0.001)

Team members were also more likely to wash if the first person
entering/exiting washed (75% v. 31%; p < 0.001)
Conclusion:

Efforts to improve hand hygiene compliance should be directed
towards the attendings.
