Healthcare Professionals

Programme Overview

The Healthcare Leadership Development Programme is a 12-month programme (+ End Point Assessment), designed for senior leaders within the NHS.

The collaboration between Imperial College Business School and Corndel combines academic excellence with personalised coaching, providing a unique blend of business school thinking and practical skills. Join us for a transformative journey, integrating world-class education with tailored mentoring through Corndel's renowned coaching model.

Who is the Programme for?

Our programme is tailored for ambitious clinical and non-clinical leaders aiming to develop the strategic and systems thinking skills needed to drive organisational change, enhance the patient experience, and influence healthcare delivery on a broader scale.

Please note that our application process is geared towards organisations rather than individuals. We encourage you to connect with your HR Director or Learning and Development lead to explore the possibilities of using the apprenticeship levy to enrol in one of our programmes as part of a cohort. Through collaboration with key stakeholders, we aim to create a shared learning journey that aligns with your organisation's objectives, fostering growth for both the organisation and individual.
