Introduction Leadership education and training has been recommended for medical schools for more than 20 years. The Leadership Education for Australasian health Professional Students (LEAPS) framework has been developed for medical schools. The LEAPS framework has been created using transformative leadership and has student leadership skills development for all healthcare stakeholders, including students themselves, their patients, their patients’ families and carers, and colleagues.

Methods The mixed methods multiphase study design included surveys, interviews, and a focus group. Questions asking about the teaching of leadership were organised by the five Health LEADS Australia Framework domains of Leads Self, Engages with Others, Achieves Outcomes, Drives Innovation, and Shapes Systems. As the Health LEADS Australia Framework does not provide competencies, each of these five domains were further categorised with leadership competencies as described in the book ‘Leading and Managing Health Services: An Australian Perspective’. The participant groups and method of data collection were as follows: A survey to academics/Deans in Australasia medical school, interviews with Australian Medical Student Association, a focus group with Queensland Rural Generalist Pathways, and a survey to PGY4+ graduates of the MBBS at James Cook University. Participants were provided with a table of leadership competencies and asked to select where these competencies should be taught in the medical continuum (from student to senior doctor, or a mix).

Results Competencies selected by >50% of all participants for leadership training in medical school were collated into leaderships domains of: emotional agility for long-term resilience; learning agility for high performance; relationships with patients, families, and carers; and relationships with colleagues.

Discussion This framework transforms these important medical student leadership competencies to further cement learners’ current mental models or to experience a shift in their worldview about leadership learning, healthcare, and the health system.
