Leading the Rounds: The Medical Leadership Podcast — “Bullying in Medicine and Improving the Culture of Medical Training with Dr. Simon Fleming”


Simon Fleming is a trainee Trauma and Orthopedic surgeon from the United Kingdom with an international reputation for his work to drive cultural change in healthcare.

He has given talks across the UK and abroad, including his TEDx talk, about his award-winning #HammerItOut campaign. His goal is to tackle bullying and discrimination in healthcare to create a positive and empowering workplace to improve patient care.

Simon has received many awards for his work in improving standards in medical education and shining the spotlight on the need for cultural change in healthcare. One of which is the first man to receive Honorary Membership from the Medical Women’s Federation.

In this episode, we discuss bullying in medicine, driving cultural change, as well as his belief that one person can change the world. We hope you enjoy this episode of Leading the Rounds.

Leading the Rounds: The Medical Leadership Podcast

As physicians, we are immediately thrust into a leadership position from the moment we finish medical school. Despite this, most medical students will obtain little formal leadership training. We seek to improve our leadership abilities as burgeoning physicians. We developed this podcast to challenge ourselves to explore ideas in leadership development and how they apply to medical training. We hope to educate and motivate others to further develop themselves as leaders in health care.
