Young Physician Leaders (YPL)

Health

Overview

Effective healthcare institutions need effective leaders. The IAP Young Physician Leaders (YPL) programme trains emerging leaders (under the age of 40) working in healthcare centres around the world and links them together in a peer-support network.

The issue of developing leadership qualities among health professionals is often neglected, with many young professionals having to learn their leadership skills almost by trial and error as they are handed positions of responsibility.

Although incorporating leadership training programmes into the medical curriculum is gaining in importance, in practice too few countries are actually providing such training (See, for example: Health Professionals for a new century: transforming education to strengthen health systems in an interdependent world).

To contribute to building capacity in this area, IAP launched its Young Physician Leaders (YPL) programme in 2011 in partnership with the World Health Summit (WHS) and the M8 Alliance of Academic Health Centres and Medical Universities.

Sessions have been held at each WHS since 2011. In addition, a regional event was organized at the Regional WHS in Singapore in 2013 and in Portugal in 2018. A 5th year event for alumni was organized in May 2016 at the World Health Assembly.

To date, the IAP YPL network of alumni includes more than 200 leading young professionals, under the age of 40, who were nominated by their national academies. Their details can be found in the dedicated YPL Directory

The IAP YPL call for nominations is sent to IAP member academies and M8 Alliance members every year in May (but please note that due to the COVID-19 crisis, IAP will not hold the regular leadership workshop at the World Health Summit in October 2020).
