Aim of the Session

To share the importance of authentic and inclusive leadership in medical and health sciences education.


Context and Goal:-

Synopsis from the Closing Address:

“The importance of authentic and inclusive leadership in medical and health sciences education has been highlighted by many researchers. Effective leadership is essential to any organization’s success, and it becomes even more significant during times of uncertainty and change. Some have said that leadership and uncertainty go together, and that “without times of uncertainty, there would be no need for leadership.” It has also been said that leadership during uncertain times is a delicate balance, requiring a deft hand, clear mind, and strong will, as well as authenticity and inclusiveness. During this session, we will explore differing definitions and attributes of leadership, the role of leadership in managing change and uncertainty, and ways to promote authentic and inclusive leadership in ourselves and others, including our colleagues and students at all levels of the educational continuum. Using several case examples, we will explore how leaders can adapt to changing circumstances, provide vision and direction in times of uncertainty, and anticipate future challenges. We will also have an opportunity to reflect upon opportunities and challenges in being – and becoming – authentic and inclusive leaders.”

One of the future trends which have been identified to be incorporated in future health professions education leadership is the integration of artificial intelligence and big data analytics in the continuum of health professions education. APMEC 2024 with its theme AI in Health Professions Education has highlighted this aspect.

This session will introduce a discussion of whether advanced knowledge of analytics and data mining should be practised by the present HPE and healthcare leaders to align healthcare practices more effectively to social determinants of health.
