Medical Leadership HEA4117

Overview

HEA 4117 Medical Leadership is a 20 credit, masters level module. The module is designed to address and is mapped to, the Medical Leadership curriculum, and as such, the module content is based on the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management 2015 Standards, namely Self Awareness & Self Development; Personal Resilience, Drive and Energy; Effective Teamwork; Cross-Team Collaboration; Corporate Team Player and Corporate Culture & Innovation. The curriculum is also mapped to the GMC Leadership & Management for all doctors (2012); GMC/AMRC Developing a Framework for Generic Professional Competencies (2015) and the Health Care Leadership Model (2013).

This module is blended and the delivery consists of the equivalent of 3 days face to face sessions and 3 days online learning.

It is based on a Patchwork Text approach to writing (short pieces of reflective writing) based around experiences of medical leadership and reflections on a range of self-assessment tools to include Jung Type Indicator (JTI) and Emotional Intelligence profiles. This gradually builds up over the course of the module as the individual ‘patches’ are stitched together in order to reach new understandings of the role of the medical leader.

Who is this module for?

This module is aimed at Doctors, Dentists and General Practitioners in training (Early and Middle levels) but it also introduces key topics that support the Pre-Consultant or equivalent level.

What are the key aims of the programme?

The aim of the module is to develop reflective medical leaders who are aware of their strengths, limitations/challenges and who are able to proactively manage themselves and lead their teams.

The module also aims to raise awareness of the importance of medical leadership and crucially the requirement to take theoretical learning into the workplace. Furthermore, participants will be challenged to reflect with peers with the guidance of medical educators, through a range of mediums, which will include a personal journal and online discussion forums. The module will enable participants to understand both the macro and micro issues and the impact on their role as medical leaders in a dynamic NHS. This process of reflection and learning will assist trainees to the transition to consultant.

What will I study?

Broad content will include:
• Self awareness tools: JTI, leadership approach, Belbin Team Role, 360 feedback, benchmark against MLCF;
• Leadership qualities/skills/competencies/styles - Ideal Self, Real Self - to include communication & EI - spheres of influence;
• Engaged/shared/distributed/ethical/7 Habits of Highly Effective Leaders/Action Centred Leadership Models;
• Context - Drivers, Policy, Medical Leadership within organisations;
• Team roles and team development;
• Medical leadership within organisations;
• Multi-factorial influences impacting on the role of the medical leader - to include culture;
• Introduction to management and organisation theory - to include resource management and performance;
• Patient safety/risk/governance leading people though change and transition - frameworks, models, tools;
• Case Studies.

How will I be assessed?

Formative Assessment: The formative assessment will draw on the student’s structured personal reflective journal. Students can choose one reflective patch to critically explore (approx 750 words) and submit for formative feedback. The feedback in relation to their academic writing will 'feed forward' and, therefore, inform their summative assessment. The reflective journal will also provide a framework for multisource feedback and review to help identify their feelings, strengths, areas of challenge and facilitate action planning - this will inform the summative assessment. The reflective journal will also inform and be integral to the summative assessment.

Summative Assessment: An integrated reflective portfolio (3000 words plus evidence, reflective patches and personal leadership action plan ) to meet the module learning outcomes.

On successful completion you will:

Appraise their own qualities, skills, strengths and challenges demonstrating deep levels of self-awareness and critical application to their own medical leadership role.
Critically reflect on the impact their leadership qualities and behaviours have, on their team and wider organisational networks.
Critically reflect on their role in practice-base change and the subsequent improvement in service outcomes, through critical understanding of the impact of self on change and innovation.
