Versus Arthritis MSK leadership programme

Following the successful launch of the Musculoskeletal (MSK) Champions programme in 2018, Versus Arthritis is delighted to announce that wey’ll shortly be open for applications to cohort 3 of our MSK Champion programme.

Together with international business school Ashridge Executive Education, we have created a bespoke leadership initiative, which will support you to become a Champion of MSK care.

If your application to this programme is successful, you will be supported and coached to improve your personal leadership skills, helping you to drive improvements in musculoskeletal care, either with a local or national focus.

You need to be involved in the design, commissioning and/or delivery of musculoskeletal care and could be a:

  • Clinician (including but not exclusively an AHP, Nurse, GP, Pharmacist, Rheumatologist) 
  • Public health practitioner
  • Commissioner
  • Service Manager

Instead of hierarchical position we’ll be focussing on your potential to lead, your self-awareness, willingness to reflect and learn, adapt to change and deliver results for people with MSK conditions.
