Why medical leadership
Why ‘Medical Leadership’?

  • Built on the concept of Shared Leadership.

  • Not restricted to people who hold designated leadership roles

  • Leadership which 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.

Medical Leadership Curriculum

The Medical Leadership Curriculum is based on & developed from the MLCF and details the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours to be formally achieved and consolidated as all doctors progress in their careers.
