Course Description

This programme of three interlinked one-day workshops and accompanying coaching sessions is offered to directors of medical education, training programme directors, training committee chairs; indeed all those clinicians involved in leading and managing postgraduate medical and dental education. The programme is designed to develop the practical skills needed to lead within a rapidly changing environment and a financially constrained NHS.

The three workshops will help participants develop awareness of their strengths as educational leaders, and areas for development, as well as specific skills related to planning, negotiating, and influencing individuals, teams and systems to promote excellence in clinical education. They will explore approaches to understanding organisational contexts including budgetary and financial issues. Participants will be asked to complete pre-reading and a questionnaire before the first workshop. Between workshops, participants will have access to a specified number of coaching sessions related to an agreed educational initiative that they are involved in leading.

The programme will be facilitated by organisational psychologists from Edgecumbe Health in collaboration with senior medical education experts.

This is open to Heads of Specialty Schools, Training Programme Directors, Directors of Medical Education, GP & Dental Tutors and STC members only
