This developmental paper from the Organizational Transformation, Change and Development track of BAM 2013 outlines some initial findings from a study into changes in medical education aimed at providing formal management and leadership training for doctors at all career stages from initial training at medical school through to their appointment as consultants.
This paper outlines changes to medical education, including how doctors have been engaged with management and leadership as part of their training and in the running of a publicly-funded health service. This is framed within the context of institutional work and how individual actors engaged with a change that impacted on the criteria of a profession, which has implications for organisational change when implemented. It draws on empirical data in the form of 21 interviews with key individual actors engaged in the change.
