In response to interest expressed by present and past medical students and other trainee doctors, this workshop was organised to help doctors in training to develop their management skills.


With GPs set to take over NHS commissioning and the Darzi report in mind, there is renewed interest in doctors becoming involved in healthcare leadership and management, both in the NHS and the private sector.

While most doctors will not want to become full-time managers, most doctors, as part of their clinical work, will become involved in some aspect of management and leadership, whether this is in managing a clinical research programme, being a partner in a general practice, making the most of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals, or helping to design a new service. Being able to demonstrate an interest in and knowledge of management is a valuable addition to a doctor’s CV.

The workshop was addressed by doctors currently involved in various aspects of healthcare management and provided a forum for discussion of how the college can help doctors in training to develop their leadership and management skills.

Workshop leaders: Maire and Paul Brankin, both members of Green Templeton College, who work with Chairmen, Chief Executives, senior managers and medical leaders in the NHS, helping them to develop their leadership and management skills.

The Medical Leadership Competency Framework jointly developed by the Academy of the Medical Royal Colleges and the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement describes the leadership competencies all doctors need to develop. It includes five domains, including ‘Demonstrating Personal Qualities’ and ‘Working with Others’. This workshop was aimed at enabling participants to develop their abilities in these two domains.

Designed for present and past medical students and other trainee doctors, the workshop focused on emotional intelligence, understanding one’s own and colleagues’ personalities, and using this understanding to work effectively together. The programme was interactive, involving self-assessment and discussions in small groups.
