Join three clinical fellows whilst they discuss why they applied, and what they are doing now with a chance to ask them questions.

Candidates have until 18 January to complete their applications for the National Medical Director's Clinical Fellow Scheme.

The scheme, now in its seventh year, offers the opportunity for doctors in training to spend one year working with some of the most senior medical leaders in healthcare in England.

FMLM welcomes today’s announcement that Professor Stephen Powis will take up the role of National Medical Director at NHS England. This will follow the retirement of Professor Sir Bruce Keogh at the end of this year.

Professor Powis is the inaugural editor-in-chief of the journal, BMJ Leader (co-owned by FMLM) and has been a valued supporter of FMLM with a deep commitment to medical leadership and management.

Mr Peter Lees, FMLM Chief Executive and Medical Director, said:

The second annual Leaders in Healthcare conference came to a successful conclusion last week after an outstanding line-up of speakers, many new connections forged and much learning for FMLM members and others to take back to their organisations.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has pointed to the crucial role that leaders have played in the past year in maintaining standards when the health and care system is "straining at the seams", and highlights the importance of leaders in helping transform struggling services and creating outstanding ones.

FMLM has received a growing number of applications for Fellowship over the summer.

Members are reminded to submit applications for FMLM Fellowship by 19 October to qualify for ‘Founding’ Fellowship status. This applies to all three levels of Fellowship.

More than 40 new successful applicants are eligible for inclusion at the Founding Fellows ceremony at Leaders in Healthcare conference in Liverpool, 31 October – 1 November 2017.

FMLM is delighted to announce that Clare Marx has been nominated and elected unopposed for the position of FMLM Chair. 

Clare Marx CBE DL FRCS SFFMLM is Associate Medical Director for Appraisal and Revalidation at Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust. In 2008 and 2009 Clare was President of the British Orthopaedic Association and was President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England between 2014 and 2017.

As part of the nomination process, Clare has made the following statement to support her nomination:

We are delighted that FMLM has been shortlisted in this year's Distinguished Achievement Awards by Thinkers50, which have been described as the “Oscars of management thinking.”

We're one of eight diverse organisations and people being shortlisted for the Ideas into Practice category.

We owe this honour to Professor Sir Neil Douglas, FMLM Chair, and Sir Bruce Keogh for their vision and drive in establishing FMLM as the home of medical leadership and management.

FMLM is delighted that more leading medical professionals are applying for FMLM Fellowship. Around 50 applications have been received so far and new Fellowships have been awarded.
