Course content

This innovative part-time course has been developed to train future leaders in the competitive and challenging environment of clinical medicine.

It is recognised that demand for services will increase because of the increasing population age and prevalence of people living with long-term and chronic conditions with high and rising costs of treatment and care. This course aims to support healthcare professionals, particularly those working in general practice, in developing their clinical leadership and management skills to become empowered, well-developed clinicians who are prepared for the impact of these pressures upon the NHS while continuing to maintain and improve patient care - directly via clinical provision or indirectly via mentorship of colleagues and medical students.
