Course content

Challenge yourself with our progressive PG Diploma in International Healthcare Management that will provide you with a systematic and critical understanding of leadership and management theory, challenges and practices within a global healthcare environment.

This course introduces you to the complexities of international healthcare, covering a wide range of challenging and thought-provoking business and health related topics.

Developed by subject experts, this advanced programme looks at principles, theories and practices within healthcare management. It also provides you with the opportunity to learn about the processes of policy-making, planning and delivery of services whilst taking into account the cultural, ethical and social issues.

On this course you’ll learn how to critically analyse, compare and reflect on different national and international approaches to healthcare management considering the external contexts, contemporary issues and influences. You’ll also be able to understand approaches to global healthcare management by relating every day, personal and community experience with management theory.

Upon completion of your Postgraduate Diploma, we offer the opportunity for you to progress to study for a full Masters (awarded after 180 credits).
