Doctors as leaders accreditation

The 'Doctors as leaders' accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) explores key features of organisational leadership and examines the knowledge and personal qualities that are necessary for doctors to lead effectively in the NHS.

What will you learn?

The accreditation consists of two interactive 1-day workshops, which will enable doctors to explore the theory and practice of team leadership and organisational change, as well as to examine their own individual leadership styles and explore ways of dealing with the demands of life as a consultant in the NHS.

Accreditation workshops

To achieve the RCP leadership accreditation you will need to attend both of the following workshops (in either order):

Following your attendance, you will be asked to submit a short assignment reflecting on your practice as a leader. You will receive full details of the assignment during the workshops.

NB Early bird discounts are available on selected workshops.

Who should attend?

  • all specialties
  • ST3+
  • SAS
  • consultants and final-year trainees

These workshops are primarily aimed at new consultants and senior trainees. However, more senior consultants will also benefit from the issues covered.
