Leadership Development Programme 2017

Introduction

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.

All places for the 2017 programme are now full.
