This study sought to investigate the perception on Clinical leadership of doctors working in tertiary hospital in Dar es Salaam Tanzania. The study was guided by the following objectives; to find out whether clinical leadership and health care leadership mean the same thing for doctors, to determine the perceived difference between medical leadership and clinical leadership and to examine the perceived similarities of doctors’ leadership and clinical leadership all aiming eventually to lay a foundation of clinical leadership studies in Tanzania. Using a pre-tested structured questionnaire, doctors with a minimum of first degree working with Muhimbili (plus Mloganzila), JKCI, MOI, Aghakan, ORCI and CCBRT filled the questionnaire physically or submitting an electronic copy of the same. Descriptive statistics and correlation analysis were used to analyse data. The study found that healthcare leadership was significantly positively and moderately correlated with clinical leadership, Doctors’ leadership was positively correlated with clinical leadership and Medical leadership was also positively and significantly related to clinical leadership. Conclusively, the study recommends that policy makers and leaders in health care industry should give more leadership chance to clinical personnel than non-clinical personnel. A more well-structured research on clinical leadership targeting practices, attributes, barriers and enablers should be conducted as a follow up to this one. Keywords: Clinical leadership, health care leadership, medical leadership, doctors’ leadership
