President’s Leadership Lecture: “Clinical Leaders – patients need you!”
The next President’s leadership Lecture will be held on 7 March 2019 at 6.30pm – 7.30pm at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow where the new Chair of the GMC, Dame Clare Marx, will deliver the lecture on the topic of Clinical leaders – patients need you!
Dame Clare Marx is Chair of the GMC - the first woman in history to hold the position since the regulator was established 160 years ago.
Clare joins a growing body of women leaders in healthcare. She became a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at St Mary’s and St Charles’ in 1990 before moving to work at Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust in 1993 for the next 20 years, becoming Associate Medical Director for appraisal and revalidation in 2013.
Clare chaired the Trauma and Orthopaedic Specialist Advisory Committee for the Royal College of Surgeons and co-authored the first competency-based curriculum in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery. She received a CBE for services to medicine in 2007 and was elected President of the British Orthopaedic Association the following year. In 2009 she was elected to the Council of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and chaired the Invited Review Mechanism from 2011-14 before being elected President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (2014-17), the first woman in the history of the College to hold this role. Clare was also the Chair of the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management until the end of 2018.
This free lecture is part of a series of public events run by the Royal College which aim to provide a public platform for some of the key issues facing medicine in the twenty-first century.
