The Healthcare Leadership Academy is delighted to announce that the annual application period for our landmark scholars programme is now open.
In this, our third year of running the course, we are proud to announce we are offering even more places to outstanding applicants across the medical, nursing and allied professions. This year the course is formally sponsored and supported by the Medical Defence Union. It is also an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM - www.institutelm.com) approved course, permitting those who complete it, eligibility to apply to become ILM fellows and gain post nominals.
The HLA is organising two cohorts of scholars starting in July 2018. There will be a cohort of approximately 17 scholars based in London and a further cohort of up to 20 scholars based in Newcastle. The programme will last twelve months with 9 mandatory contact days in each programme. The programme is FREE for successful candidates as it is fully funded by The MDU, Health Education England North East, The Norwegian Medical Association and Medics.Academy.
We are particularly pleased to encourage paramedics to apply for this programme through our partnership with the College of Paramedics due to the innovative work of the College.
Scholars will be expected to develop a project over the course of their year. Participants will also have opportunities to be introduced to key leaders and individuals that will help challenge their thinking and support them in the development of their projects.
