Leadership and Management Fellow Scheme

The Royal College of Psychiatrists Leadership and Management Fellow Scheme aims to develop and support a new cohort of emerging medical leaders within psychiatry.

We are proud to be accredited by The Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM) and progress beyond the basic capabilities expected of all psychiatrists, to accelerate fellows leadership and management development.

Through the combination of a high impact leadership development programme, with a local apprenticeship model, fellows proactively engage in leadership projects and are mentored by senior medical leaders within their organisations.

The scheme occurs in-programme, utilising special interest time over a 12-month period, and is open and available to all higher specialty trainees.

Fellows unite with colleagues from across the UK through a suite of face-to-face and virtually-delivered modules that have been developed and are led by a faculty of established psychiatric leaders.


Applications are closed for the 2022/2023 Scheme. Please contact lmfs@rcpsych.ac.uk to register your interest in the 2023/24 Scheme.
