What does the programme offer

The programme forms part of a strategic partnership between FMLM and NHS England to increase clinical leadership capability across healthcare. It aims to create a formal network for fellows to stay connected, while providing access to ongoing leadership development opportunities and creating a multiprofessional talent pool for healthcare systems to engage with.

How can clinical fellow alumni be helpful to the wider healthcare system?

Alumni are a valuable pool of diverse, highly skilled individuals with diverse skill sets, experiences, and expertise for healthcare providers and organisation to draw on. 

Organisations may choose to engage the skills of alumni in a variety of ways including:
