Educational Leadership Programme for Surgeons – The Royal College of Surgeons of England
April 13, 2016 @ 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM£500
With its focus on the key leadership skills of personal qualities and working with others, the aim of this course is to develop consultant surgeons who will display the behaviours highlighted by the Francis and Berwick reports, including an emphasis on patient safety and transparency.
Covering many key management principles in the context of an educational environment, including leadership styles, leading teams and mentoring, this course is strongly recommended by the Royal College of Surgeons of England for all Surgical Tutors and Training Programme Directors, providing them with the skills to support all trainees and consultants in their Trust.
The format combines the flexibility of online learning with two face-to-face days. Delegates attend both days (March 3rd and April 13th 2016).
The course covers a range of topics associated with leadership including:
- Introduction to Leadership (including Kotter)
