Management Fundamentals & Core Principles

Provider CPD Points Duration
Academyst from eMedicus Ltd.61 Day

Clinical staff frequently find that the technical & medical knowledge they've worked hard to gain is only part of the story when managing people, projects and performance. This one-day comprehensive programme seeks to fully address that by covering all the essential topics in a very practical way, enabling you to really develop your management skills in the clinical context. It's built on robust principles and models to ensure that you develop a consistently successful approach.

Management Fundamentals is our baseline programme for clinical professionals of all types to gain a thorough understanding of management in the clinical service context and how to apply it.

It's suitable for Consultants, GPs, Senior Nurses and Doctors-in-training.


Going forward, we have made the decision to concentrate on our ever growing In House/Bespoke course delivery, rather than open courses. With ever greater financial pressures on Trusts, this allows us to deliver a lower per person cost, with no travel for delegates as an added bonus.

We are able to come into your trust and deliver highly cost-effective, first class training service to groups of typically between 8 – 20 delegates (larger numbers can be accommodated on request).  For 8 or more delegates, the in-house rate saves both Trust and individuals money, not to mention the time-saving from not having to travel. 

Most of our courses can be tailored to suit specific groups e.g. consultants, SAS doctors, allied healthcare professionals etc, or structured for mixed groups. We are also finding that 2 or 3 local trusts may join forces to put on a training course, allowing more attendees and thus lowering the cost per person still further.
