M 5:30-6:20P MED 245 Leadership in Medicine - Developing Your Moral Identity Students will view videos of well-known leaders being interviewed or watch a live interview of the chief communications officer of Stanford School of Medicine each week. All this will be conducted through zoom conferencing for students to connect from home. With these interviews we will be highlighting the ethical challenges that these leaders faced and how they rose to these challenges, or fell short. These famous leaders will come from a variety of fields including academia, government, law, public service, public health, the military or journalism. We will then hold small group discussions after the interviews to debate the decisions made by these leaders. Through discourse and deep reflection we aim to prepare students for their own leadership challenges of the future. Students can apply for an additional unit with self-directed reading and a written paper describing important principles of leadership (1-2 units). ZOOM sgyurdzh(at)stanford.edu
