The NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme is an intensive programme, combining early responsibility in real jobs with management education. It offers the opportunity to specialise in general, financial, informatics, human resource or policy and strategy management. The scheme includes a thorough induction and orientation to the NHS, work placements and, on the General Management Training Scheme, the opportunity to spend time working with other healthcare organisations in the UK.  Trainees on the General Management Scheme are also given the opportunity to gain postgraduate qualifications in health care or general management.
