The Main Course: Why Medical Trainees Need More Leadership Training with Dr. Tom Hustead
Aug 03, 2020 Season 1 Episode 8
Caleb Sokolowski & Peter Dimitrion

In this episode we interview Dr. Tom Hustead.

Tom graduated from West Point in the top 3% of his class and then from Case Western University School of Medicine. As a retired Army Colonel, highlights from his distinguished career include being awarded Flight Surgeon of the Year for his service in combat, Outstanding Faculty of the Year for his medical teaching, and board selection as Department Chair for a family medicine residency department.

As a result of his appointment by the Army Surgeon General to be the “face of military medicine” to recruit and share the Army Medicine story, Tom recognized a need and developed a passion for teaching physicians across the country to be effectively engaged leaders. In his final appointment in the military, Tom was the commander/CEO of a NATO military medical facility at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe in Belgium.

With an emphasis on servant leadership, Tom’s core conviction is that effective leadership is never about the leader, but is focused in creating a culture where those being led can flourish. In 2018 he co-found The Referent Group, a team seeking to develop better medical leaders through longitudinal workshops, programs and coaching.

In this episode, we discuss his journey to becoming a leader, as well as why he believes leadership development is crucial for the medical community to thrive in the future. We hope you enjoy this discussion with a leader in medicine, Dr. Tom Hustead.
