Emerging Leaders Programme


Our graduates have won multiple awards for their projects.

ELP graduates have taken on a variety of leadership positions, from consultant and matron roles, to ward management, chairing representative groups and starting their own leadership programmes.


Individual Impact

Skills, knowledge, confidence:

Delegates learn a range of important leadership, management, teamwork, and conflict resolution skills. Through facilitated group work and team projects, they have the opportunity to practice, adapt and improve their practical skills and confidence in these areas.


By working in teams with other healthcare professionals, delegates develop relationships with peers they might otherwise not have the chance to interact with.

Internal and external speaker sessions offer opportunities to learn from and interact with senior healthcare leaders. 


Organisational Impact

Team project outcomes:

Teams design, deliver and evaluate a quality improvement project.

Project topics are proposed by OUH leaders and adapted by teams. 

Leadership capacity:

Leadership theory, skills and practical experience are developed in early to mid-career healthcare professionals, who are important future leaders.

Conflict resolution capacity:

Delegates are trained in recognition, management and resolution of conflict. Conflict is inevitable in work environments, and by learning to effectively recognise and manage conflict, delegates may be able to improve team functioning and cohesiveness.


By offering a means for early to mid-career multidisciplinary healthcare professionals to interact and work with each other, the Emerging Leaders Programme helps to build a more connected community.
