Leading Together

18 March 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Professional Development Programme for Senior Doctors

The landscape of the NHS is evolving rapidly and requires medical leaders equipped with the professional skills to navigate and lead our future services. This unique programme brings together newly appointed consultants, GPs and other senior doctors from across Dorset to explore and address some of the challenges faced by senior doctors working in the modern NHS.

The aim of this course is to develop professional and leadership qualities in all newly appointed consultants, GPs and other senior doctors in Dorset within the first five years of their appointment. This programme enables senior doctors to explore and address these challenges while networking with each other with the aim of building a stronger healthcare leadership network for the future.

Leading Together is designed to facilitate and inspire personal development. The programme is led by two experienced clinical educators, a GP and a Consultant Psychiatrist, with the support of some specialist guest speakers. The underpinning philosophy and principles of the course are:

1. The importance of the peer group as a medium for professional learning

2. The benefits of reflection in professional development

3. The principles of action learning as a way to develop professional medical practice

4. Enhancing communication and understanding between primary and secondary care

5. Time away from the work environment to critically explore the wider health and social care system

Four core themes provide the basis for discussion and reflection within the following four sessions:

Day 1 Education and Supervision

Day 2 NHS Structures and Finances 26/01/2021

Day 3 Professionalism and Governance 18/03/2021

Day 4 Leadership and Motivation 08/06/2021

The programme consists of four one- day sessions which run 9am – 4.00pm. Should you miss one session in a given academic year, you would be able to register for that day in the following academic year.
