Background

In India, continuing success in health was through high quality research aimed at new knowledge or generating fresh interpretation of known facts and principles. Capabilities of independent physicians and different actors in health sector were integrated with medical research in order to address various bottlenecks. In past 2 decades there has been rapid urbanization, mechanization and globalization leading to many unprecedented changes in disease pattern, quality of care, lifestyle and environment. In addition, this is an era of shifting patient care from hospitals into the community, which provides new and challenging opportunities to young and experienced clinicians for research and improved education. Equally important is the critical need to decipher actionable knowledge of what drives human behaviour. Without hampering India’s vision on sustained economic growth and wellbeing, it is important to create boundaries at individual as well as societal levels by responsible conduct of research and training.

In this context, India requires more clinicians and health researchers with leadership skills to improve effectiveness, efficiency and equity of care particularly in resource constrained-settings. INCLEN’s vision is to engage young clinicians and researchers across country to develop their leadership skills in health research. Leadership is a process whereby an individual influences a group to achieve a common goal. Leader should have clear vision, knowledge, commitment and skills and most importantly, leader should act to achieve that vision.INCLEN with its vast experience in research and research management national and international programs is conducting its flagship ‘Leadership and Management (LAMP)’ training programs since 2012. This program includes: 1) pre course exercises for self-assessment of leadership skills, 2) residential face-to-face interactions. During the course participants develop ‘personal leadership development plans’, for both professional and personal livesand 3) post course review of progress in individualised leadership development plans through three contacts to discuss and nurture various aspects of management and leadership skills after their return to their work environment..

Objectives of the course
  1. To familiarize participants with the latest concepts and theories in leadership related to health research.
  2. To apply these concepts and theories to strengthen skills of leadership and management, networking and partnership in health research through reflections of their own skills in these areas.
  3. To develop and implement personal action plans to strengthen skills in managing self, teams and networking through refection of current levels of skills including mentoring discussions in follow up phase of the course.
