The recent reforms to the MHS have resulted in a need for management training to be a part of higher professional training. The trend towards competition within internal markets requires that all doctors become managerially accountable for the quality and efficiency of their service (Waters, 1985). The beed for management training has been recognised by the Collegiate Trainees' Committee (CTC, 1990, 1995). Some training schemes offer no organised management training, and some provide training as a short course (Reder, 1996). Many residential management courses are available, providing one or two weeks of ‘Intensive training’. Inevitably, the amount of management theory and techniques which can be learned on such courses Is limited.
