Health Education England North West (HEE NW) believes in investing in future Medical Leaders. We fund a high quality Fellowship programme for exceptional trainee doctors and dentists. The HEE NW Medical Leadership Fellowship programme (MLFP) is a flexible, challenging and practically orientated approach to leadership development. The Fellowship programme is based on integrating all aspects of Medical Leadership to prepare hospital doctors and dentists for their future leadership roles.
The fellowship enables individuals to experience a range of leadership opportunities made up of academic, clinical and vocational elements.
It is hoped that by stimulating interest in medical education during training, individuals will go forward with the skills and motivation to take up valuable leadership / supervision roles within their workplace. One of the main objectives of being an MLF is to help to foster a culture of excellence and leadership in the clinical workplace.

"Well in the beginning we didn’t really know what to expect. I think it has definitely exceeded my expectations. I think it’s a very well resourced, very intensive programme and I think that we’ve all learned a lot… the academic sort of views, experiential learning sets and the action learning; all these things I didn’t actually realise the programme was going to be so full of!”
The fellowship will financially support trainees to complete 2 modules of the PG Cert in Medical Leadership
Design and delivery of a quality/service improvement project related to medical leadership in the trainee’s clinical setting, either workplace, or school based, supervised by a senior member of faculty at the HEE (NW) Deanery and with the support of the Trust Clinical Director or equivalent.
The project must be in addition to any annual audit/QI project required as part of the specialty curriculum requirements and will be trainee-directed with input as required from a range of senior educators, including Associate Deans, Head of School, Training Programme Directors, Practice Leads and Directors of Medical Education, as relevant to the project.
During the fellowship, MLFs will have the opportunity to learn from medical leadership encounters and access relevant HEE experiences and development opportunities. These could include the following:
- Opportunity to shadow people in Medical Leadership roles e.g Medical Director, CCG lead, national leadership lead
- Psychometric tools (e.g. MBTI, Belbin) delivered by a member of HEE staff
- Healthcare Leadership Model (HLM) 360 degrees appraisal
- Opportunity to present a poster at the HEE (NW) Annual Conference (year 2)
Initially, MLFs are offered a tenure of one year with a second year granted on evidence of satisfactory progression in the role.
