Course content

Doctors need to do more than just heal; they also need to effectively lead and manage teams. In the modern health environment, a proportion of them must lead and manage our complex health service.

This course aims to educate doctors in the principles of leadership and management, and is suitable for doctors at all stages of their careers.

You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidencebased practice. We aim to develop your research and writing skills so that you will be in a position to contribute to the scientific literature in an eff ective manner.

The course culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two publishable scientific articles.

The content of the course is mapped to The Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board Speciality Training Curriculum for Geriatric Medicine.

If biomedical or clinical research is your interest, successful completion of the MSc will allow you to directly register onto PhD study and join our team of researchers at the Institute of Medicine.
