Leading is not about the position or person; it’s about the process and the people.  MTLDP has exceeded my expectations by equipping me with tools to lead and empower my patients, students, residents, and colleagues and for that, I am forever grateful. MTLDP has transformed my understanding of what is necessary to be an effective educator. MTLDP gives you tools that can be applied in the classroom, clinic, or wards immediately that are learner-centered. The MTLDP is an excellent learning opportunity if you are ready to work very hard and if you are interested in advancing your career in medical education. The program helps you learn some very practical as well as theoretical concepts that apply to the learning and teaching process.
