“People think leadership has to be a loud person standing in front of everybody, declaring themselves the leader. Leadership isn't a dictatorship. Leadership is not always that loud person.”  -- Dr. Zainab Abdurrahman


On this episode of "The Allergist," we explore what leadership in medicine actually means with Dr. Zainab Abdurrahman, an accomplished allergist and clinical immunologist. Dr. Abdurrahman, who wears many hats including that of an assistant clinical professor of pediatrics at McMaster University and the incoming president-elect of the Ontario Medical Association, shares her insights on what it means to be a leader in the medical field.


Leadership, as Dr. Abdurrahman explains, is not just about being at the forefront; it's about inspiring and motivating others, guiding teams towards a common goal, and sometimes, leading from behind to allow others to shine. This episode is not just about the theoretical aspects of leadership but also about its practical applications in the challenging landscape of healthcare.


Dr. Abdurrahman's journey is a testament to the diverse forms leadership can take, from being the team lead in mock codes to shaping the future direction of healthcare in Ontario. She discusses the challenges and opportunities that come with being a female leader in medicine, breaking stereotypes, and paving the way for future generations.


So, whether you're an aspiring leader, a medical professional, or someone curious about the intersection of leadership and medicine, this episode offers valuable insights and inspiration. Join Dr. Mariam Hanna and Dr. Zainab Abdurrahman on "The Allergist" as they explore the essence of leadership in medicine and how it shapes the healthcare landscape.
