The Y&H Improvement Academy is offering unique fellowships in clinical leadership. We are seeking enthusiastic fellows from different professional backgrounds to develop the skills and knowledge that will help them become clinical leaders of the future. Knowledge of Artificial Intelligence is not required as the Fellow will be collaborating with experts in the field. The Leadership Fellow (Real-world Clinical Use of Artificial Intelligence) will work alongside a cross-disciplinary team(e.g. academics and data scientists) to identify and start to address issues round the safe use of AI in the NHS; covering the whole chain of AI development from the investigation of “health data poverty” which may lead to health inequalities becoming embedded in AI, to clinical models of care and AI-supported decision-making in real scenarios. The Improvement Academy, based at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, is a leading national centre in patient safety and quality improvement. The Fellow will work across a range of health and social care settings and in collaboration with a range of organisations. They will join a well-established team of improvement and patient safety specialists from a variety of clinical, managerial and academic backgrounds to help support them in their role. Through our academic and improvement links, our fellows are supported to develop expertise in areas such as Quality Improvement, Behavioural Change, Human Factors and Data Analytics.
