Leadership in the medical field is expanding rapidly as the healthcare sector becomes more and more complex in the 21st century. Medical training emphasizes technical expertise. Healthcare providers, however, find themselves increasingly focused on the administrative side of medicine. They are called to lead others while delivering quality care. At McDonough, many leadership students major in science-related fields, while pursuing a minor/certificate in Leadership Studies. Through coursework and hands-on experiences, they develop the confidence and insights about the leader-follower relationship. These insights have a direct application to the services they will provide in the healthcare field.
