Course content

This programme aims to equip students who are front line clinicians or have roles in management and leadership in healthcare. As health care provision becomes increasingly complex, with greater demand for services and more people with multiple long term conditions plus the shortages of skilled professionals, there is a growing importance on how health care needs to improve and transform.

The overall aim of this programme is for you to continue to develop yourself and your leadership and management skills by understanding and reflecting on people and team’s behaviours and their effect on an organisation’s development and its ability to improve. The programme explores global health challenges and their relevance to your everyday practice. This will develop your research and leadership skills to enhance your critical thinking.
