Models of Medical Leadership project (2009-2011)

In collaboration with the University of Warwick, HSMC will undertake a two year research project into models of medical leadership and their effectiveness. 

The project, which commences in January 2009, will begin by exploring the ways in which clinical professionals are engaged in the management and leadership of healthcare organisations across England with a view to developing a typology of structures.  The second phase will provide an in-depth exploration of case study sites to determine whether there are particular structures which advantageously facilitate engagement in medical leadership.  This will cover behaviours within these structures, including dynamics between medical leaders and managers, and how these clinical professionals are supported, prepared and developed within these roles.
