Course information

Event Overview

Medical leadership and management is of growing importance. Developing effective services for frail older patients lie at the heart of future planning for the NHS and commissioners and policymakers are increasingly turning to consultant geriatricians to provide expert advice on clinical governance and service delivery models.
New consultant geriatricians need to have skills in clinical leadership to ensure that services change and develop to meet the specific challenges raised by our patients.While there are many generic courses on management and leadership available to help specialist registrars, there are none which address the specific needs of trainees of one of the largest medical specialties, geriatric medicine. To help address this gap, the British Geriatrics Society is holding a two-day residential course specifically designed for senior StRs in geriatric medicine, focusing on management and leadership issues that affect health services for older people.
The objective is for each delegate to leave the weekend with a personal development plan for leadership and management for the start of their career as a consultant in geriatric medicine. It is a not-for-profit course run for the benefit of BGS members and offers exceptional value for money.

Who should attend

The course is aimed at senior (ST6 and ST7) specialist registrars in geriatric medicine, who are approaching their final registrar year and looking for a consultant position in the near future.

Recommended reading list

The reading list is non-compulsory but it covers some important recent papers that will shape leadership and management agendas for geriatricians over the coming years alongside more generic issues of which you should be aware. The list is not exhaustive and has been whittled down to give a primer ahead of the course. You can download it on the course page.
