Course content

Delve into the fascinating world of global healthcare and take your first steps towards leadership with our online Postgraduate Certificate in International Healthcare Management. The course will provide you with an understanding of leadership and management theory, challenges and practices in relation to healthcare.

You’ll learn the principles and practices of good management as well as developing an awareness of the healthcare environment. You’ll also gain skills which will enhance your CV and that can be used directly in your current position or to enhance your career further.

Using programme content created by tutors with considerable academic and professional experience, you’ll gain confidence as well as an in-depth knowledge of the complexities of modern management which can be applied within a healthcare setting. You will also be able to recognise and address ethical, social and political dilemmas and apply ethical and organisational values to situations and choices. After completing the programme you’ll also acquire a range of critical and analytical skills that can be used in a variety of different professional contexts.

This short, 100% online course is a great alternative to full-time, campus based study and is perfect if you are interested in discovering how healthcare management works, or if you are wanting to progress your career within health management, then this programme will enhance your knowledge and career prospects.

Upon completion of your Postgraduate Certificate, we offer the opportunity for you to progress on to study for a Postgraduate Diploma in International Healthcare Management (awarded after 120 credits) and a full Masters in International Healthcare Management (awarded after 180 credits).
