The importance of effective management and leadership is increasingly accepted in medicine, moving from “the dark side to centre stage.” However, few trainees are exposed to formal leadership opportunities. On many courses theory predominates over hands-on experience and reflective practice, and trainees are often observers rather than active participants in management decisions. Some appropriate leadership programmes do exist, however, and increasing numbers of trainees are pursuing these formal learning avenues. One such scheme is the Darzi fellowship, which we completed between 2014 and 2015.
