Medical Leadership Curriculum

Published by NHS Institution for Innovation and Improvement

The Medical Leadership Competency Framework (MLCF) developed by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement outline the leadership competences doctors need to become more actively involved in the planning, delivery and transformation of health services through their day to day practice. This includes developing the personal qualities required to be an active team member; supporting others who are in leadership roles; and taking an active role in leadership when appropriate.

The Medical Leadership Competency Framework and this curriculum are built on the concept of shared leadership. Leadership is not restricted to people who hold designated leadership roles; instead leadership is shown through a shared sense of responsibility for the success of the organisation and its services. Acts of leadership can come from anyone in the organisation, as appropriate, at different times, and are focused on the achievement of the group rather than of an individual. Therefore shared leadership actively supports effective teamwork.
