Letter from the Leadership and Management Fellow Scheme Director

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.

This year we are proud to have established a new leadership faculty who will deliver an exciting new programme. This has been 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.

We consistently strive to improve our offer and welcome fresh perspectives. It is both a privilege and a pleasure to lead the scheme and please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you would like to know more.

With very best wishes, 
Dr Alex Till MBChB MRCPsych MSc MBA
