Doctors take four core modules in the first year which are centred on the Medical Leadership Competency Framework (MLCF) They are as follows • managing people and organisations (30 credits) • managing quality and effectiveness (15 credits) • work based learning (operations management) (15 credits)

In year two you take one core module work-based learning (strategic medical management) and two elective modules from • managing change and organisational development • commissioning in health and social care • leading teams or managing finance.

In years one and two formal attendance requires around 10 days each academic year delivered as full day workshops. Year one addresses operational management from a medical perspective and year two covers more strategic elements of medical leadership.

Year three is focused on an e-learning research methods module and a dissertation supervised by an academic tutor. The course focuses on work-based learning modules that are facilitated through action learning sets to help you reflect on difficulties and problems in practice. Through action learning sets you apply key theoretical concepts to work-based issues or problems and look for more effective medical management and quality improvement for patient care.

Independent study and work-based learning comprise the majority of your study time. Online resources and our virtual learning environment support your studies.
