Key Course Facts

Course Description

The MSc Clinical Medicine (Leadership and Management) has been developed by practicing NHS Consultants and Health Academics in consultation with NHS Trust Partners. The course is designed for Medical Doctors and other Healthcare Professionals to develop and refine their clinical, leadership and research skills and develop understanding of effective teamwork and best practice. The speciality pathway (Leadership and Management) aims to enhance innovation, leadership, teaching, learning and research skills, thereby, facilitating personal and professional development and strengthening participants’ ability to bring about positive change, solve problems effectively, and ensure patient safety. The Leadership and Management Masters will be differentiated from the other Masters routes by its structure, by the demonstration of a deepening understanding of self-development as a clinical leader through the specific modules 7HR006 (Leading Transformational Change) and 7HR008 (Perspectives on Leadership) and within the Masters dissertation in module 7HW015.

This course has a strong emphasis on the evaluation and development of both clinical practice, research, and encourages participants to reflect critically on workplace experiences and learning. For participants, the course aims to provide a clear framework which supports CPD, recognition of prior learning and work based learning.

For Medical Doctors the course aims to provide a route in which they can take a different speciality, to change medical career routes and for Doctors seeking further accreditation of subspecialty expertise.
