Trainees' Leadership and Management 2017

14-15th October, Nottingham
Nottingham Conference Centre
Burton Street , United Kingdom

Event Overview

Medical leadership and management is of growing importance. Developing effective services for frail older patients lie at the heart of future planning for the NHS and commissioners and policymakers are increasingly turning to consultant geriatricians to provide expert advice on clinical governance and service delivery models. New consultant geriatricians need to have skills in clinical leadership to ensure that services change and develop to meet the specific challenges raised by our patients.

While there are many generic courses on management and leadership available to help specialist registrars, there are none which address the specific needs of trainees of one of the largest medical specialties, geriatric medicine. To help address this gap, the British Geriatrics Society (BGS) is holding a two-day residential course specifically designed for senior StRs in geriatric medicine, focusing on management and leadership issues that affect health services for older people.

Using the seven domains of the NHS Leadership Framework, the course will be structured in small facilitated interactive group sessions, analyzing questions around leadership, policy and management topics that attendees may get asked in consultant interviews.

The objective is for each delegate to leave the weekend with a personal development plan for leadership and management for the start of their career as a consultant in geriatric medicine. It is a not-for-profit course run for the benefit of BGS members and offers exceptional value for money.

Who should attend:

The course is aimed at senior (ST6 and ST7) specialist registrars in geriatric medicine and Specialty Doctors on CESR working towards a consultant post, who are approaching their final registrar year and looking for a consultant position in the near future.

There are a large number of courses on management and leadership run by deaneries, trusts and other organisations, what makes this one different?

  • It is designed and run by consultant geriatricians and BGS members who regularly play a role in recruiting and appointing new consultants in the specialty.
  • It deals specifically with issues and challenges that face the current and future care of older people.

The course aims to combine three elements: preparing for geriatric consultant interviews, helping newly appointed consultants avoid potential pitfalls in their first year and providing up-to-date knowledge of relevant leadership and management issues.

Why participate:

  • Practice and develop interview skills – anticipate and prepare for potential questions.
  • Network with other senior trainees, experienced consultants and BGS office holders.
  • Gain vital knowledge on key leadership and management challenges facing health services for older people.
  • Get professional guidance & assistance on how to avoid common pitfalls in leading the delivery of services for frail older patients
  • Develop contacts to render help and mentorship during your first year as a geriatric consultant.
