The Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management (FMLM) works to inspire, equip and support individuals from all career stages and specialities as well as assist teams and organisations to achieve better patient outcomes and increased productivity.

The Cumberland Initiative and FMLM

The Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management and The Cumberland Initiative have agreed to cooperate over simulation and modelling for medical leaders. Systems-thinking offers a strategic approach to designing care and is a high-level means of improving operations. This collaboration will build capacity for systems thinking in the NHS, for under the agreement, doctors will be able through the FMLM to become Cumberland Associates.

“Systems thinking is increasingly recognised as crucial in the armamentarium of healthcare leaders and is prominent in the FMLM Leadership and Management Standards for Medical Professionals. FMLM is, therefore, very excited by the collaboration with The Cumberland Initiative, which offers a unique approach to navigating the complexities of healthcare delivery.”
FMLM Chief Executive, Mr Peter Lees
