Why are management skills important to a medical professional?
The answer to this question can be perfectly summed up by the below paragraph written by Lisa S. Rothenstein, MD, Raffaella Sadun and Anupam B. Jena which was published in the Harvard Business Review:
“Medicine involves leadership” and “all physicians take on significant leadership responsibilities over the course of their career.” However, physicians are not taught how to lead and “leadership skills are rarely taught and reinforced across the continuum of medical training.” It is essential to note that “medical institutions have designated “leadership” as a core medical competency“.
“As more evidence shows that leadership skills and management practices positively influence both patient and healthcare organisation outcomes, it’s becoming clear that leadership training should be formally integrated into medical and residency training curricula.”
Do I need to be formally employed to join the programme?
No, you don’t need to be employed to join The Medical Leader Programme
Are there any entry requirements?
No, there aren’t any entry requirements or any prerequisites to joining the Medical Leader Programme

This is a question we are asked frequently and depends what you are looking to achieve. The average time our learners remain on the programme is 5 months. The programme is designed to be there when you need it and many use the platform to solve problems when they arise. Some learners have said it’s like having a business school in their pocket and the themes in the course can be accessed at any time, in any order.
Some of our learners want to use the programme to simply obtain CPD credits. In this situation you could focus on the 30 accredited courses to gain the 30 CPD credits. This could be done in a couple of months.
Some learners have the intention on joining long term but the situation at work has changed. In this case cancelling the subscription can be done at any time and you can restart at any time. Having this flexibility is very important.
