Published: 09 Dec 2019

The National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow Scheme provides doctors in training with the opportunity to spend one year out of clinical training, working with senior leaders and teams in national healthcare organisations to develop skills in leadership, management, strategy, project management and health policy.

Want to know more?  In this podcast, HQIP medical director Professor Danny Keenan talks to respiratory registrar Sam Bartlett-Pestel about his decision to step away from clinical practice for a year to pursue a National Medical Director Fellowship. This is the first in a series of podcasts following Sam’s journey at HQIP.

Participating organisations include HQIP, NHS England and NHS Improvement, Health Education England (HEE), GMC, CQC, NICE and BUPA.

The scheme is open to doctors in training from all specialties who have completed foundation training and do not expect to gain CCT before 1 September 2020. Candidates must have full GMC registration.
