FMLM College Council Online Leadership Development Programme

Tuesday, 18 October 2022 - 9:00am
Tuesday, 15 November 2022 - 9:00am

Getting the best from being a council member at your college or faculty

Who is the programme for?

The programme is designed for new college council members.

What is this two half-day online programme about?

New college council members, whether elected or appointed, face a steep learning curve. Working within a royal college is very different from working in the NHS. Serving on a decision-making body across a whole area of medicine requires a broader focus to being a senior clinician. There is often a lack of appreciation of what colleges have the power to do and how they carry out their work. This introductory programme aims to uncover some of those mysteries and equip a new council member to be effective in the role. 

The programme explores the environment in which colleges work. It draws on the perspectives of leaders in the NHS, from the devolved nations, from regulatory and education bodies and form across the colleges. The course then explores how the colleges operate in that complex and constantly changing environment, as collective bodies, as charities and as advocacy and influencing bodies.

This highly participative programme is designed and run by the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management under the leadership of Andrew Hall, immediate past chief executive of the Royal College of Radiologists. While it covers much of the 'what' about being a council member, some sessions explore the 'how'. More individualised coverage of topics can be arranged separately to explore selected topics in more depth. The programme is delivered online over two haf-day modules.


The final 2022 programme and it's faculty are now being finalised. View the 2021 College Council leadership development programme. Please note content and faculty may vary slightly.
