Healthcare Leadership Academy
Kieran Robinson MCPara, paramedic at Welwyn Garden City, has successfully completed his 2019-2020 scholarship at The Healthcare Leadership Academy (HLA).
Talking about his time at the academy, Kieran said “My time as a scholar with the HLA has helped me develop several key leadership skills and I have learned how to apply them in practical ways within the workplace. My work with the HLA has also allowed me to apply for fellowship (level 7) of the Institute of Leadership and Management. Going forward, I have been successful in gaining the role of Assistant Cohort Director and now run my own cohort of Scholars. I am the only paramedic to have completed the program so far and I’m looking to increase our representation within the HLA. I would encourage anyone interested in getting involved to contact me at Kieran.firstname.lastname@example.org or on twitter @Kieran_Robinson. Please note Scholars must be either a registered paramedic or on a student pathway to become one.
The HLA works with multidisciplinary healthcare professionals and students to develop our healthcare leaders of the future. Completing a scholarship involves a challenging combination of project work and personal development.”
Johann Malawana, Director of The HLA, said:
“We are immensely proud of all our graduating scholars this year. In healthcare, we need leaders who inspire, listen and care. The HLA supports our scholars through their whole careers to ensure all our societies have the healthcare systems needed to look after their populations.
We want a world that is prepared for future crises, and The HLA will continue to support individuals as they support their communities."
The HLA is approved by The Institute of Leadership & Management, is a certified member of Social Enterprises UK, is proudly sponsored by The MDU, commissioned by Health Education England North East and Health Education England South West, partners with and through Medics.Academy its programme is accredited by the Medical School at the University of Central Lancashire. The programme is supported by University College London’s Academic Careers Office.
