About the RCSI Institute of Leadership

RCSI has been developing leaders in medicine and healthcare since its foundation in 1784.

In 2005, we established the Institute of Leadership, Ireland's only third-level institution dedicated exclusively to developing the leadership, management and educational capacity of health professionals. While the Institute is a fully academic institution, we maintain close connections with the world of healthcare delivery and higher education and our programmes are characterised by flexibility, speed of response, customer service and a blended learning approach that allows our students to learn while continuing to work.

The Institute has campuses in Dublin, Dubai and Bahrain and we also deliver programmes in Abu Dhabi, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Over 1,000 healthcare professionals are registered annually on our MSc and Executive Development programmes, focused on leadership, management, education, quality and process improvement and patient safety.
