Emerging Leaders Programme


The requirement for leadership skills is a universal one for clinicians, but the scale and scope of leadership activity varies according to the specific leadership role identified. Those doctors who progress as leaders will spend increasing proportions of their time engaged in leadership activities, often working at increasingly complex levels of organisation within a local Trust, regionally in a system, or nationally. The balance of required skills varies, in a way that is analagous to the changing balance of skills and activity as a medical career progresses.

This programme focuses on medical leadership at the “New Consultant” level. This is taken to mean doctors in the early years of their consultant career or working at Specialty and Associate Specialist (SAS) level.

The programme consist's of:
1. Seven contact modules, each a half-day , delivered by FMLM Applied at approximately one-month intervals 
2. A number of interspersed modules outlining core “management” skills for doctors at this level, to be delivered by Trust senior leaders and managers
3. Work – some form of project linked to day-to-day clinical roles – to be undertaken by participants in between the contact modules. This work will be a stimulus for leadership learning and development, but will also be supported from the participation of the doctor in the programme. This is based on evidence that up to 70% of the benefit of leadership development comes from practical application of what is learned in a “classroom” type environment, leadership (like clinical medicine) being a practical skill, albeit informed by theory and knowledge.
