Our Emerging Clinical Leaders programme helps support those clinicians and health professionals already managing people move into a more senior leadership role. The programme will equip you with the skills needed to manage a team, build resilience and respond to an ever-changing external environment. 

The course is suitable for clinicians working in the NHS, social care, local authorities or the private sector. You might be a specialist trainee doctor, junior consultant, senior nurse or allied health professional. 

The course will take place over six days in a four-month period in a combination of online and face-to-face sessions. During the sessions, you will work with our programme directors and fellow participants to explore your leadership style and think about how this might evolve in the future.  

What will I learn on the Emerging Clinical Leaders programme?

The Emerging Clinical Leaders programme will support you as you start your leadership journey. It focuses on three main areas: you as a leader, your relationships with others, and your role in the system you work in. 

Over six days you will learn:

  • about your own leadership style and how others perceive you

  • about personal resilience

  •  how to create a sustainable, compassionate culture

  • how to join up strong leadership with patient-centred care

  • about your role in promoting safe, high-quality care

  • how to lead through change and ensure you maintain wellbeing across your team

  • how to collaborate with other leaders and team members. 

Is the Emerging Clinical Leaders programme for me?

The Emerging Clinical Leaders programme welcomes clinicians from all backgrounds moving into leadership roles. Typically, participants taking this course are in roles such as:

  • specialist trainee doctors

  • junior consultants

  • senior nurses

  • ward managers

  • senior and lead physiotherapists, paramedics, dietitians  and other allied health professionals

  • senior clinicians working in local authorities or government bodies

  • senior clinicians working in the private sector. 

To access the course, you will need a PC with Microsoft Teams or Zoom and to be in a quiet and calm environment for the duration of each session. For the middle two days of the module, you need to be able to travel to The King’s Fund in London for an overnight stay.
