Professionalising medical leadership and management

Evidence

FMLM is committed to identifying, growing and applying the evidence base for leadership and leadership development. From 2013 – 2015 FMLM, The King’s Fund and the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) conducted a literature review of the evidence base for leadership in healthcare and published Leadership and Leadership Development in Health Care: The Evidence Base.

Standards

The Leadership and management standards for medical professionals set out the behaviours needed for medical leadership and management practice across the UK health sector. The standards are:

  • designed specifically for medical professionals working in the UK, from all specialties, career stages and across all sectors involving healthcare
  • derived from and build upon General Medical Council guidance, Leadership and management for all doctors, UK national leadership frameworks and models, and research on medical leadership, management and engagement
  • used by doctors and by organisations for professional and organisational development.

360 feedback tool

This medical leadership diagnostic has been developed to support doctors at all career stages: team member, team leader, operational leader and strategic leader. It is:

  • informed by experts and designed specifically for doctors to gain insight into their own leadership behaviours and performance, available at several levels for all career stages
  • based around the behaviours associated with effective leadership and management, as articulated in the Leadership and management standards for medical professionals
  • developmental, helping doctors to become more effective as a leaders.

We have launched Founding Fellowship of FMLM in 2016. Three levels of certification will provide members with an opportunity to be assessed and recognised for their leadership.
