The Management in Medicine Programme is a programme for medical students and doctors in training, consisting of four elements:
- a series of workshops to develop leadership and management knowledge and skills
- a speaker series
- shadowing opportunities
- a regularly updated and circulated selection of resources of relevance to doctors who are developing their leadership and management skills.
The involvement of clinicians in healthcare leadership and management continues to develop momentum. There is increasing recognition that it is vital to the improvement of health services, and there is a growing body of published evidence to show that, at least in an acute setting, the quality of healthcare delivery improves when clinicians become involved in the leadership of services.
Giving clinicians leadership and management training and experience is integral to the success of this strategy. Although most clinicians do not want to become full-time managers, many will become involved in some aspect of leadership and management as part of their clinical work. This might be in managing a clinical research programme, being a partner in a general practice, getting the best out of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals, or helping to design a new service.
The Management in Medicine Programme is therefore being developed in response to interest expressed by clinical students, medically qualified research students and medical alumni, as well as trainee doctors (particularly Academic Clinical Fellows) in the Thames Valley.
The initiative draws on the deep tradition in medicine, health and the social sciences within Green Templeton, allied with its strength in business and management.
The Programme is directed by a Steering Committee of college Fellows and others who are involved with leadership and management development in the NHS. Some are faculty of the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, while others are associated with the Medical School.
