EM Leaders Programme - Faculty of Medical leadership - Thursday 19th September 2019

Venue: Mercure Hotel, Norwich

The Royal College of Emergency Medicine, Health Education England and NHS Improvement are excited to announce a one-day leadership development workshop for all emergency medicine trainees in the East of England.

Leadership is both about improving the quality of care to patients and making work more interesting and fulfilling for all of us. This dynamic and interactive workshop is designed as a foundation point to start learning about leadership: what it is and how we can all become better leaders whatever our clinical role in Emergency Medicine.

The workshop is rooted in the practicalities of leading in ED, both the challenges that we face and real things that can be done. This day provides a unique opportunity for emergency medicine trainees from all training grades to come together. There will be lots of opportunities to meet and discuss with your fellow specialist trainees during the day. At the end of the day you will come away with a better understanding of yourself, and some practical changes to carry forward especially to improve teamwork and handle the conflicts that often exist in this highly pressured setting.

The day will be delivered by the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management in conjunction with, Brian Kennedy & Carly Farrow.

Dear Emergency Medicine HST trainees 

You are invited to attend the first HST regional teaching session which is taking place on Friday 5th June, 09:00-11:00hrs. This session will take place using Microsoft Teams

These sessions will take place every Friday between 09:00 – 11:00hrs and will take place instead of the monthly face to face training days. Please ensure you inform your rota coordinators accordingly.

Internal study leave should be reinstated now that Trusts are looking at plans for return to business as usual,  any time spent viewing online content should accrue into normal study leave allowances. We plan to run these up to the end of December, after which the hope is that we can meet again face to face.

The link to microsoft teams has been sent to you by email. ​

We look forward to seeing you at Friday’s teaching session.
