WMS has become the first medical school in the UK to receive accreditation for its MB ChB curriculum from the Faculty for Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM).
The accreditation confirms our commitment to preparing medical students to lead continuous improvement in health and care inclusively, compassionately and collaboratively.
Medical degrees accredited by the FMLM have been recognised as incorporating a leadership and management curriculum that covers essential skills needed as a doctor, including:
- Developing personal qualities such as self-awareness, acting with integrity and working effectively with others
- Increasing understanding of healthcare systems, including managing resources and improving services
- Leadership learning mapped to the General Medical Council’s Outcomes for Graduates.
Dr Anne-Marie Chilton, Academic Lead for Personal and Professional Development at WMS, says: “At Warwick Medical School we recognise that our students will be the medical leaders of the future, and we aim, right from the start of their training, to help them develop the many and diverse skills they'll need to take on this important role. Gaining accreditation with the FMLM has been a tremendously useful exercise for us as educators as it has encouraged us to analyse our whole undergraduate curriculum and innovate to enhance our leadership offering.”
The FMLM curriculum has been endorsed by the General Medical Council, Medical Schools Council, Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, NHS Leadership Academy, NHS Education for Scotland, Wales Deanery, and Health Education England.
