Course Overview

This programme is designed to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills in line with the Medical Leadership Competency Framework.  The course is interactive, participatory and work-based requiring just six days attendance alongside on-line learning activities.  The programme is structured to encourage personal leadership development and so can benefit doctors at every stage of their career.

The programme is for you if you are interested in improving patient experience and service delivery, demonstrating caring, compassionate and authentic leadership and developing your own leadership capacity in order to achieve and evidence medical and organisational impact.

Progression from a Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits) in Medical Leadership to the Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits) provides a pathway to further enhance your knowledge and understanding about medical leadership.  It will also develop management skills in line with GMC’s “Leadership and Management for all Doctors” (2012), through a range of optional modules and work-based applied medical leadership projects.

If you wish to progress with your studies by completing a work-based medical leadership project you will have the opportunity to gain an MSc in Medical Leadership.
