In order to have sustainable clinical leadership, capable of scaling up efforts from the grassroots level, we have established Clinical Fellowships and Clinical Entrepreneur schemes for the dental profession. With this new network of clinical leaders, we are making a significant investment in ensuring effective and influential leadership for the future.
The Chief Dental Officer’s Clinical Fellow Scheme supports dental professionals who have had limited dental leadership opportunities and have not held a senior leadership role in dentistry. The Scheme provides a unique opportunity to spend 12 months in a national healthcare-affiliated organisation outside of dental practice, to develop their skills in leadership, management, strategy, project management, and health policy.
Further information about the scheme and its recruitment can be found on the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management website.
