Download this FreeBook, published in partnership with WONCA.

Leadership in Family Medicine: From the Personal to the Policy Level is a compilation of chapters from CRC Press texts, selected by Professor Amanda Howe, President, World Organisation of Family Doctors (WONCA), with an Introduction written by Professor Howe giving her insight into each chapter.

[The FreeBook] starts with one of the many important papers about family medicine, highlighting the key barriers and ways to overcome them as the speciality moves forward: then goes back to basics, looking at how a medical school curriculum can use family medicine to enhance professional learning and develop early leadership competencies in medical students. We then look at leadership in team work, both from the practical group work perspective, and in effective inter-professional.” – Professor Amanda Howe

The World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) is a not-for-profit organization and was founded in 1972 by member organizations in 18 countries. WONCA now has 118 Member Organizations in 131 countries and territories with membership of about 500,000 family doctors and more than 90 per cent of the world’s population. This includes eight organizations in collaborative relations with WONCA. There are some 21 members in the Academic membership category, which consists of Academic Departments of Family Medicine. Over 800 individual general practitioners and family physicians have chose to join WONCA in their own right.
WONCA represents and acts as an advocate for its constituent members at an international level where it interacts with world bodies such as the World Health Organization, with whom it has official relations as a non-governmental organization and is engaged in a number of collaborative projects. The WONCA World Secretariat has transferred from Singapore to Bangkok, in November 2012.
