What exactly does “medical leadership” mean? To be honest,
this made me ponder on that very question. For over a year I’ve been
serving in the “Military Academy of Medicine” as a commander of
a variety of courses - involving military trainings of dentists, dental
assistants, nurses and more. I speak of the importance of being an
officer in the medical corps of the IDF on a weekly basis and yet I
came to the realization that I, myself, am not sure of its importance.
The time I have spent thinking and planning before writing this
essay has made me dig inside and eventually made me reach a better
understanding of my role as a medical leader. Medical leadership
can be divided into several parts.
