Professional Diploma in Clinical Leadership


This Professional Diploma in Clinical Leadership* is unique in that it is an interdisciplinary specialist postgrdaduate programme designed for newly appointed or "soon to be appointed" senior clinicians, clinical managers, supervisors, clinical nurse managers and allied health professionals in the private, public or non-profit sector who wish, quickly, to develop their clinical leadership skills. 

The IOL is now in the process of enhancing the current Professional Diploma to offer a flexible and student centred delivery model embracing the full benefits of digital technology to offer a digital first blended programme. An online delivery modality which facilitates students who cannot take the time out of their work schedule to attend face-to-face sessions. The programme which will be delivered using a blend of on-demand content, synchronous tutorials, discussion fora and bookended by a face-to-face induction and onsite wrap-up session will allow students to develop their clinical leadership capacity, increase their self-insights and maximise their impact on others in their healthcare organisations while studying in a way that fits with their work and personal commitments. The initial cohort of students will be chosen from the Irish market which a view to rolling the programme out to other jurisdictions in 2019.


The online application system for the programme is now open here. Please call Linda on 01 402 8681 or email lindajoyce@rcsi.ie if you have any further queries.
