The health workforce of the 21st century has enormous challenges; health professionals need to be both experts in their field and equipped with leadership and managerial skills. These skills are not part of the regular curriculum, so specific programs bridging this gap are required. Since 2001, FAIMER®, with eight centers across the globe, has worked to create health professions education leaders through transformational learning experiences, developing a global community of practice encompassing over 40 countries. These authors describe the design, implementation, evaluation, and evolution of the leadership and management curriculum component of the global Institute over 15 years. The article highlights the unique features, challenges faced, and sustainability issues. An appendix is available that details the purpose, objectives and the pedagogical processes for each unit of the leadership curriculum.
