Future Leaders Programme for Surgeons (FLP) 2021

The Future Leaders Programme (FLP) is open to general surgeons, ENT, urology, OMFS, breast, vascular, cardiothoracic, paediatric, neurosurgeons and plastic surgeons. This program is exclusively supported by Ethicon and the J&J Institute. This 12-month blended learning pilot programme will support 12 surgeons - ST8, SAS or in the first year of consultancy, with the passion to be future leaders within their specialty and equip them with the advanced leadership skills needed to excel. Learning outcomes will be linked to The Faculty of Surgical Trainers Professional Standards and the GMC Generic Professional Capabilities. For the first pilot course outside T&O where we have run several successful programmes, we plan to run with 12 participants. 

Participants will complete an educational project which will provide the vehicle for learning and development of leadership skills. The structure of the programme will comprise four 2-day live virtual programmes over the 12-month period, with Action Learning Sets which will be self-directed.  The final 2 day session will take place live at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.  With current restrictions, we will run modules of the programme entirely on-line.
