The process leading to accreditation 

The Management in Medicine Programme was originally designed specifically to meet the Medical Leadership Competency Framework, which correlates to the FMLM’s leadership and management standards for medical professionals.

Each workshop and seminar within the Management in Medicine Programme directly relate to these standards.  This led us to seek accreditation with the FMLM.

The FMLM’s leadership and management standards for medical professionals are articulated as a set of core values and behaviours designed to work across all career levels.

FMLM believes an effective medical leader is defined by how and what they do, under-pinned by why they do it. The ‘why’ is guided by the values espoused in the Seven Principles of Public Life and the General Medical Council’s Good Medical Practice .

The ‘how’ and ‘what’ medical leaders do is set out as behaviours which can be observed, measured and developed:

  • Self
  • Team
  • Corporate Responsibility
  • System Leadership

Programme accreditation

Each seminar and workshop has been assessed against the Medical Leadership Competency Framework and, therefore, the FMLM Leadership and Management Standards for Medical Professionals (example in the presentation on this page).

Speaker self-assigned points have been moderated to give overall credits for each behaviour, as displayed in the table:
