Junior Doctor Leadership Opportunity - HLA Scholarship

Course/Event Date: Monday, March 1, 2021

Course/Event Duration:

Course/Event Description

We are delighted to announce that applications for 2021-22 scholarships with The Healthcare Leadership Academy (HLA) will open 1st March 2021 and close Wednesday 31st March 2021 at midday (12 noon) GMT.

The HLA aims to nurture leadership, foster front-line innovation and to empower the next generation of clinical leaders. Our internationally recognised and innovative scholarship programme welcomes healthcare professionals and students and gives them the tools and a community of support to help maximise their potential as healthcare leaders.

Over the 12-month programme scholars will be involved in developing and delivering a project, alongside mentoring and learning opportunities. This is a fantastic opportunity for healthcare professionals to both develop themselves as professionals and healthcare leaders, but to also use the HLA as a platform to take their ideas forward and change the future of healthcare.

There will be cohorts with physical sessions based in London, Newcastle, Bristol, Edinburgh, Belfast and Amsterdam, as well as three virtual cohorts (which will enable applicants to be able to participate from anywhere in the world). Applicants are welcome and expected to apply from across the globe this year.

In 2021-2022 we have 100 funded scholarships available (worth £3000 each) with the programme fees covered. These scholarships are available via competitive entry through this application round. HLA  programmes are accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management and UCLan Medical School and delivered with a number of partnership organisations, including the Council of Deans of Health and Health Education England.

Leila Ellis, Academic Foundation Year 1 Doctor & HLA Scholar 2020-21 said:

The HLA community is uniquely diverse, inspiring and supportive. From enjoyable challenges such as designing and pitching an innovative idea during a cohort day to opportunities to work with fellow scholars on projects throughout the year to create resources, run campaigns, organise conferences, discuss issues in healthcare with successful leaders through live-streamed videos or podcasts and so much more. As a clinician at the start of my healthcare leadership journey, the knowledge, skills and network of multidisciplinary friends and mentors I have built through The HLA are invaluableI”

Many previous scholars have been doctors at various stages of training and have gained an enormous amount from being a part of the programme. 

We would be grateful if you would share this opportunity with the junior doctors within your region. If you would like to become a HLA partner, please do contact us on partnerships@thehealthcareleadership.academy

Thank you
