Leadership Development Programme 2017
The UCLPartners Leadership Development programme is an exciting multi-professional initiative that provides a unique development opportunity to health professionals who aspire to be healthcare leaders of the future. The programme offers the opportunity to gain an understanding of clinical leadership over a range of areas, to develop core skills to support a future senior leadership role within the NHS, and to work with a cohort of like-minded health professionals.
This nine-month programme consists of a mixture of taught modules, action learning sets; and will encourage individuals to participate in additional learning intervention such as mentoring and shadowing within the NHS and in different sectors. A key element of the course will be the design and implementation of a quality improvement project, providing candidates with a real opportunity and experience to make a positive impact on the care of patients.
Taught sessions will include:
- Developing as an effective leader
- Delivering a Quality Improvement project
- Innovation and managing change
- Teams, group dynamics, conflict and assertiveness
- Learning from patients – and Integrated Care
- Career and personal development
- Understanding NHS Finance and Service Development
We are looking for the clinical leaders of tomorrow. The programme is aimed at health professionals who have a strong personal interest in developing their skills in leadership. The closing date for submission of applications for the 2017 programme is noon, on Friday 10 March 2017.

15. What happens if I am rotating into another trust during the programme?
Answer: If this is the case, then you should liaise with your future trust about whether they would support your continued attendance on the programme, speaking ideally to your future educational supervisor and/or line manager. For trainees a discussion with your Training Programme Management Committee chair will assist. Contact details for your TPMC chair can be found on the specialty page on the website. NB- Although this has been inconvenient for some candidates the majority have managed this transition well.
