Leadership and Management Standards for Medical Professionals

The UK medical profession has a distinguished international reputation for standards in clinical medicine. There is a need to replicate this for leadership and management given that research evidence clearly demonstrates a positive link between medical leadership, better patient outcomes and organisational performance.

The values and behaviours articulated in FMLM leadership standards underpin the principles of the General Medical Council’s (GMC’s) Good Medical Practice and the guidance in Leadership and Management for all doctors. They are relevant and apply equally for all medical and dental professionals across the UK. Moreover, they form a basis for organisations to support doctors and dentists in management and leadership positions for the benefit of the organisation and to demonstrate effective leadership to address the requirements of organisational regulators.

This edition links the Standards with FMLM Fellowship, which was introduced in 2016 for doctors who demonstrate high levels of leadership competence. There are three levels of Fellowship to reflect the levels at which individual doctors operate at different stages of their careers: Associate Fellow, Fellow and Senior Fellow. Moreover, Fellowship recognises the leadership of doctors in training and offers this important group the opportunity to benchmark their leadership and management skills against set standards.
