Aim of Course:

To develop the skills underpinning knowledge and self-awareness to be an effective clinical leader.



This course is a pilot for the Severn Deanery and complements the Professional and Generic Skills day on Leadership and Management (Module 7).  It will develop deeper and more extensive knowledge about leadership along with effective clinical team leadership skills.  The Educational Development team of the Deanery is currently implementing a series of leadership development events and courses for Postgraduate Medical Training that build on and link with each other – the long term aim is to establish a ‘ladder’ of leadership courses that can potentially lead towards a postgraduate qualification in clinical leadership and management.
