Course summary

Promoting a values-driven and authentic leadership approach, this programme develops experienced doctors and new consultants as leaders and effective change agents. You will gain the skills, knowledge and self-awareness required to improve the quality of care, enhance service delivery and lead people through change in health and social care. The programme will enable you to critically reflect on your practice, consider your style of leadership, assess your decision-making skills and gain an insight into your personality, from influencing style to emotional intelligence and resilience.

You will be encouraged to consider the type of leader and change agent that you are, the type of leader and change agent you aspire to be (and why), and the action that could be taken to enhance your leadership and change management development. On successful completion of the programme, you will be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Leadership and have the option to progress onto a dedicated Medical Leadership and Development pathway on our MSc Leadership Development.

What will I study?

A key strand of the programme examines the personal attributes of a leader. You will develop leadership skills, reflect on your personality type and emotional intelligence, and gain an insight into your role within a team.

Focus is also placed on change theories. You will consider how to lead others through the change process effectively, examine key theories, styles and tools, and critically reflect on your own actions and those of others.

In addition to the two key compulsory modules, a third module is selected from the faculty’s professional development portfolio. You might choose to focus on the role of the clinical supervisor, examine the drivers for change and innovation, immerse yourself in strategic clinical leadership, or specialise in professionalism and ethics in a multi-disciplinary team.

What are my career prospects?

In an increasingly competitive health service, health and social care staff need to continually seek opportunities to add to their portfolio of qualifications to advance their careers. This is particularly true for doctors where a postgraduate qualification is increasingly perceived as highly desirable.

This Postgraduate Certificate will equip you with a range of leadership and change management skills. It provides a highly relevant qualification which demonstrates a commitment to continuous professional development and prepares you to apply for a wide variety of roles within service improvement and project management. Specifically, you will be prepared for consultant interviews and the transition to employment as a consultant. You will also be prepared for appraisal and re-validation in relation to leadership and management standards.
