Leadership skills are essential for critical care physicians. Most fellowship programs do not include focused education about leadership. Furthermore, there is no commonly employed framework for leadership training within pulmonary and critical care medicine. In order to address this gap in current training, a formal curriculum aimed at teaching leadership skills to critical care medicine fellows was developed using a novel framework. High-fidelity simulation was employed as a means to practice and solidify newly learned leadership techniques and behaviors.
