Making better decisions in life and work

Management in Medicine seminar

Monday 20 January 2020   18:45


Richard Canter, Visiting Professor of Surgical Education in the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Oxford.

Part of the Management in Medicine Programme.

We all have to make many decisions at work, in research and in our private lives. Typically we encounter a choice, we analyse our options, we make a choice then we live with it. This session explores the powerful biases, illogical wishful and overconfident thinking that characterises many of our decisions. This interactive session will aim to convince you to consider a different process of making decisions. It wont solve all your problems! … but you might hopefully end up making better decisions.

The Management in Medicine Programme has been established by the Fellows of Green Templeton College to help clinicians in training and postgraduate students with an interest in healthcare management develop their management and leadership skills.
