Medical Leadership Competency Framework – Third edition published.

The Medical Leadership Competency Framework: Self assessment tool – 2012

The third edition of the Medical Leadership Competency Framework (MLCF), which describes the leadership competences doctors need to support the transformation of health services, is now available.

First published by the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement in May 2008, as part of the joint Enhancing Engagement in Medical Leadership (EEML) project with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, the EEML project team has worked with regulatory bodies and medical education organisations throughout the UK to integrate leadership skills into each stage of a doctor’s training and career. The third edition incorporates feedback received from users.

John Clark, Director of Medical Leadership at the NHS Institute, explains that: “Doctors need particular leadership skills to enable them to become more actively involved in the planning, delivery and transformation of health services. The MLCF applies to all medical students and doctors throughout their training and career, and helps NHS organisations design effective leadership development programmes, appraisals and recruitment processes. It can also support doctors with personal development planning and career progression.”

The MLCF can be downloaded from the project documents part of the website.
