Leadership & Management Fellow Scheme

Nominations for the 2021/22 Scheme are now open.

Welcome to the Royal College of Psychiatrists Leadership and Management Fellow Scheme.

We believe in the value of strong medical leadership to deliver high quality care to patients.

We provide a unique opportunity to support the formation of a national network of emerging medical leaders, through a combination of a high impact leadership development programme, and a local apprenticeship model. 

With the support of their local organisation, the scheme is open to all higher specialty trainees in any psychiatric sub-specialty, and occurs in-programme, utilising special interest time over a 12 month period.

To date, we have connected over 25 mental health organisations, through over 50 fellows, who continue to develop through our emerging alumni network, and this year we are proud to be building our leadership faculty as we prepare to launch an exciting new programme. 

While we ask for patience as this is developed, it is designed to enhance a range of practical knowledge and skills in line with the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management’s Standards for Medical Professionals, and we are pleased to now launch formal applications for 2021/2022.

The deadline for nomination forms is Monday 5 July.

It has been a privilege to help establish the scheme, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us, and I look forward to welcoming your involvement with our exciting new team over the year to come.

With very best wishes, 

Dr Alex Till MBChB MRCPsych MSc MBA

Director of the RCPsych Leadership and Management Fellow Scheme
