BOA Clinical Leaders Programme 2019/20

The BOA National Clinical Leaders Programme (CLP) is now in its sixth year. The programme is derived from the previous BOA Transitional Fellowship Programme, however the CLP has a wider reach with the addition of Senior Trainees (ST8 or above), newly appointed consultants and SAS Surgeons.

The programme is delivered through a combination of master classes, tutorials and coaching sessions with experts. The legacy of this one year development programme is a significant innovation and improvement project delivered by each clinical leader to either their Trusts or Specialist Societies strategic change agenda and improvement of T&O services across the board.

Fellows on the programme will be given the option to enrol in an additional course, running in parallel to the CLP, which has accreditation for a CMI Level 7 Certificate in Strategic Management and Leadership. The cost of the CMI programme is £636 (including VAT). If a fellow wishes to enrol in this additional course the cost would need to be covered by the fellow, not the Trust or Specialist Society who may be funding their place on the CLP.

Further information, including provisional course dates, is available on the CLP Promotional Flyer. Please use the information on this webpage for details on how to apply.
