Abstract:

There is increasing acknowledgement by the medical profession that doctors need to be competent managers and leaders at all stages of their careers. This view is being endorsed not only in the UK but also internationally as increasing evidence becomes available at the relationship between medical engagement and organisational performance.

This paper provides an overview of a project being jointly led by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement in the UK. It reviews some of the literature that supports the movement towards greater medical engagement and the extent to which both the medical profession and policy makers are in accord.

The paper outlines the key elements of the unique medical leadership competency framework and how it applies at different stages of a doctor's career and training. In addition, the paper reports on a study of the relationship between medical engagement and organisational performance and how Chief Executives might do more to genuinely involve clinicians more effectively in the management, leadership and transformation of services.
