Medical Student Elective

FMLM is committed to supporting medical students who are seeking to develop their leadership and management aspirations. The FMLM Medical Student Elective is designed to offer medical students insight and a greater understanding of leadership, management and healthcare policy in a non-clinical setting.

The elective gives medical students the opportunity to spend a six week elective working with the FMLM outside of clinical practice. It will help students develop greater awareness and understanding of leadership and management and exposure to senior activity at a national level.

“The scheme is a truly unique opportunity to delve deeper into the day-to-day reality of medical leadership from a variety of of the most informative and educational experiences in medical school.”

 The elective offers medical students the opportunity to: 

  • Work with the Faculty's National Medical Directors Clinical Fellow 
  • Developing leadership and management skills through project work and teaching activities 
  • Gain exposure to senior medical leaders and their top teams within NHS and arms-length bodies.

The elective runs for six weeks in April/May annually.

Please note that places are limited and FMLM are not able to offer any alternative elective dates outside of the stated period.
