Accreditation of Management in Medicine Programme

Participant certification

The Management in Medicine Programme at Green Templeton College is accredited by the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM).

Attendance at Management in Medicine events is open to anyone interested in the topics we cover, either single or multiple events. Those who want to follow a significant part of the programme can sign up for certification.

To enable those who may have started working towards certification during 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23 we commit to a significant online delivery of weekday evening seminars during 2023-24. The 2023-240 programme combines Monday evening online seminars and Saturday in-person workshops.

If you would like to receive a certificate of completion for this programme, please follow these five steps:

1. Sign up

Sign up at the beginning of the academic year through the accreditation registration page.

2. Attend a selection of seminars and workshops

Individuals must record attendance and points achieved via the downloadable attendance tracking form.

Note: As MiM is primarily an enrichment programme, attendance at all sessions is not required to achieve certification. Most attendees are able to comfortably cover the content over two years by attending around five sessions a year. It is however possible to complete the accredited pathway in one year by attending around 70% of sessions on offer.

Credits from the 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23 programmes can be carried over to 2023-24 to contribute towards completing the accredited programme.

You will need at least 12 credits in each behaviour (self, team, corporate, systems) and 60 credits in total. More information on these behaviours can be found on this page

3. Participation in Shadowing Programme (optional).

The Management in Medicine Programme provides opportunities for trainee clinicians to “shadow” NHS managers and others for short periods, typically two half-days. Further information on the Shadowing Programme is available here. There are a limited number of places available and those who want to take part in the Programme must attend the launch event that takes place at the start of each academic year. The next launch event will be held on Monday 6 November 2023.

4. Reflections
  • Write a short reflective piece for each event attended
  • Write a final reflective piece on overall impact and plans to inform practice: what has been learned from the programme, how you might apply the learning in practice and what further actions you may take
  • Each reflective piece should be 400 words maximumand submitted as one combined PDF.
  • The Faculty of Public Health provides guidance on good self-reflective learning
5. Submission and certification
  • In order to complete the assessed programme, a self-reflective piece for each session attended, along with the final overall reflective piece, must be submitted and signed off by the Management in Medicine programme
  • Submission of completed attendance form
  • Bi-annual submission dates (1 September and 1 March)

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 and is leading us to seek renewal in autumn 2023.

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 (once renewed)

Each seminar and workshop is assessed against the Medical Leadership Competency Framework and, therefore, the FMLM Leadership and Management Standards for Medical Professionals.

Speaker self-assigned points have been moderated to give overall credits for each behaviour. This information for the coming academic year will be listed below as soon as it has been confirmed.
