ABCD Consultant Development Programme 2018

Leadership and Management Programme for Year 5 Specialist Registrars

The purpose of the ABCD Consultant Development Programme (CDP) is to provide Specialist Registrars (SpR) in Year 5 with the opportunity to undertake an accredited leadership and management programme to support their development as soon to be appointed consultants.

On successful completion of the CDP, it is anticipated that participants will be able to claim 20 Level 7 credits from the University of Wolverhampton which is accrediting the Programme. In terms of content, the CDP will cover (or provide access to a range of learning materials to cover) the requirements of the Medical Leadership Competency Framework.

Geared to doctors in their final year of training and newly appointed consultants, this stimulating and experiential programme will prepare you well for the next transition in your career. Places are limited to ensure a dynamic and interactive group and only ABCD members can be allocated places. If the course is oversubscribed we will give priority to those in their final year of training and those newly appointed consultants.The cost per head is over £1500. We are able to offer it to ABCD members for a much reduced fee of £375 including accommodation and meals (you will need to fund your own travel expenses).

Please note that you are expected to attend all sessions on each day of the programme and we cannot accept requests to attend part of the course only.

The course has been developed for ABCD by Prof. Dev Singh, Consultant Physician Diabetes & Endocrinology & Medical Director of The Academic Institute of Medicine, and Mr Keith Whitfield of Ultimate Performance, and ILM training centre. Together they have also run the highly succesful ABCD National Diabetes Consultant Mentorship Programme. Feel free to contact them at or for further information.
