This 2-day workshop will introduce you to the concepts of leadership you’ll need as you progress in your clinical career.  In May 2017 the General Medical Council published its ‘Generic professional capabilities framework’ and emphasises that to achieve a UK certificate of completion of training (CCT), doctors must demonstrate an ‘appropriate and mature professional identity appropriate to their level of seniority’. 


In response to this requirement, Health Education England (HEE) offers you an opportunity to attend this 2-day workshop which primarily covers competencies required in Domain 5 – ‘Capabilities in leadership and team working’. If you have already completed Professional and Generic Skills, you will not need to attend this course. The workshops will be delivered by expert academics and practitioners from Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry.   


You will cover: 


  • Background and context to management, leadership and their place in your clinical world 

  • What is leadership and what is management? 

  • Personal leadership and how to master it 

  • Teams, team development and the leader’s role 

  • Political awareness:  the structure of the NHS & where money comes from 

  • Problem solving and leading through change  


These workshops will be offered using the Distance-Learning platform designed by the University of Plymouth.  To attend, you will need access to a laptop computer or tablet.
