The University of Melbourne is incredibly lucky to benefit from having an online, audio talk show that considers issues of research, opinion and analysis. Up Close covers a broad range of different topics and includes interviews with researchers and experts in the arts and humanities, in law and business, and in life and physical science.
Up Close undertakes interviews with academics from the University of Melbourne and other experts and has an audience in 170 countries. Program episodes are downloaded at a rate of about 40,000 times each month.
I was lucky enough to be invited to take part in a program last year on the topic of medical engagement. In this I describe the benefits of getting doctors into positions of leadership in medical organisations and national health care systems. I then reflect on some of the challenges that include luring candidates from the clinic to the executive suite, and providing training to doctors in managerial methods.
