MSc/PgDip/PgCert Medical Leadership

Course Description

Make a difference to your practice by developing your leadership and management skills on a course designed for specialty registrars within a leadership role. The course supports deanery-sponsored Leadership Fellowship appointments. You have the chance to learn alongside other doctors in action learning sets in support of individual specialist projects.

The course supports and encourages you to apply key theoretical concepts to work-based issues or problems and look for more effective medical management and quality improvement for patient care. You develop your leadership skills and knowledge and gain a recognised qualification with minimal disruption to your service.

All your assignments are work-based enabling you to complete projects you are already working on as focus for your learning.
In year one and two you attend university for 10 days each year for full-day workshops. The content of these workshops is flexible and designed to meet your current needs. Workshops include supported action-learning sets helping you to tackle real world issues within a community of like-minded practitioners to develop innovative solutions to difficult workplace problems.

The Postgraduate Certificate addresses operational management from a medical perspective and the postgraduate diploma covers strategic elements of medical leadership. The masters year contains a research methods module and a supervised dissertation.
