The Introduction to Surgical Management and Leadership course provides a greater understanding of how organisations work and the key role of the consultant surgeon within it. This increased understanding gives the chance to become much more effective in initiating and managing quality change.
Offered by Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences and the Department for Continuing Education’s CPD Centre, the taught week is led by Professor Richard Canter, Head of School of Surgery, Severn Deanery, NHS Education South West. It features face-to-face lectures and tutorials in small groups.
The course is a one-week module from the Surgical Science and Practice programme. It can be taken as a stand-alone short course or as part of the MSc in Surgical Science and Practice.
