The doctors who are going through our postgraduate residency training programs are tomorrow's specialists who will be
playing pivotal roles as healthcare policy decision-makers. To establish site-specific multidisciplinary tumor boards, we
have to rely on our present-day resident’s leadership skills. We intend to provide meaningful specific patient-centered
goals to our postgraduate students who are our future specialist healthcare providers. We are witnessing a slow positive
change towards shared care and the implementation of multidisciplinary culture. This is high time to develop modules
with a specific learning objective of providing high-quality leadership skills to all our postgraduate trainees. Effective and
efficient team-building skills will enable them to initiate and maintain multidisciplinary professional processes complying
with international standards [1].
