Resilience - Clinical Leadership Workshop

Resilience - Clinical Leadership Workshop

Presented by the Department of Medical Education, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, The University of Melbourne


Prof Jill Klein, Professorial Fellow in Medical Education, Melbourne Medical School


Resilience is the ability to function at normal and healthy levels in the face of adversity. It is more than simply ‘bouncing back’, it is the capacity to maintain growth through hardships and emerge from challenges stronger than before. Research shows that resilience is key for success and satisfaction in life. This session will help you to approach adversity in your clinical work with a growth mindset, develop healthy appraisals of difficult situations, and provide support to others during tough times.


  • Understand crucial factors in resilience based on the latest research in psychology
  • Face challenges using specific resilience tools
  • Respond constructively to difficult situations, making healthy attributions that promote emotionally competent responses
  • Model resilient behaviours to others as you lead your clinical teams
