									‘Darzi’ Fellows in Clinical Leadership: project template
Fellows in Clinical Leadership (‘Darzi Fellows’) are required to undertake a number of projects while in post.
One of these will be a change management project. Fellows will work with the medical director (or

organisation’s forward programme and aligned with the principles of the NHS quality, innovation, productivity
and prevention ‘challenge’. Through this work, Fellows will learn about change implementation and
management across organisational boundaries within a local health economy.
