Management Case Study And Presentation

Page 2 of 3

It is considered important that a Candidate possesses both written and presentation skills to work effectively as a medical manager and both of those skills will be assessed as part of the Case Study requirements.

Note: The guidelines on this web site are the only current guidelines and replace any others that you may acquire from other source. This is emphasised to avoid Candidates referring to old guidelines and having to rewrite their Management Case Study.

For Management Case Study submission dates please refer to the Annual Training Calendar.

Candidates whose written Management Case Studies are assessed as satisfactory will be required to orally present their Management Case Study at the 4 day Pre Fellowship workshop.


The Candidate will be required to discuss the progress of the Case Study with his/her Preceptor or Executive Coach from the start of the study through to its completion.
