Specialist Certificate in Clinical Leadership

    The experience


    Student experiences

    “I have not done a course before that impacted on my clinical work so directly and profoundly. Even my junior doctors have noted the difference in me. The course presenters were of a superior calibre and shared their stories and knowledge so generously. Jill is a gem! Definitely a course that stays with you long after the last assessment.”

    - Catherine, Consultant Psychiatrist

    "The course was intellectually stimulating and at the same time practical. There were many lectures from leaders in healthcare. I would recommend the course to healthcare professionals wanting to develop their leadership and management skills.”

    - Doug, Director Department of General Medicine

    "Having a framework for unpacking leadership and management issues has proved invaluable. The practical focus of the course material places you in a far more powerful position when it comes to negotiating future leadership roles and responsibilities.”

    - Kudzai, Telehealth Clinical Lead and Specialist Physician
