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.

The MSc in Health Professions Education (Leadership) is designed to equip practicing clinicians with the knowledge and skills that needed to lead the development and delivery of educational initiatives in their chosen field. This multidisciplinary programme is suitable for clinicians of all backgrounds and levels of experience, and offers a wide selection of modules covering topics as diverse as clinical teaching skills, assessment, leadership & teaching ethics and law.
