Entry requirements

This course is ideal for anyone working in a healthcare role that needs leadership skills. You'll have a degree but this doesn't have to be in medicine.

As well as those already in healthcare leadership roles, this course is useful for GP practice managers, pharmacy managers, healthcare directorate managers and managers in pharmaceutical companies.

To secure your place on the course you typically need one of the following:

  • A non-medical degree working in a healthcare role
  • A medical degree
  • Relevant professional healthcare (eg doctor, nurse) qualifications

All applications are assessed on an individual basis so if you don’t have one of the above your prior experience may be taken into account.

Course content

Designed for working professionals, this online leadership course will help you develop the skills needed to be a leader – such as communication, motivation, providing inspiration and guidance, and encouraging employees to rise to a higher level of productivity.

This online Postgraduate Diploma Leadership in Healthcare, run in partnership with Diploma MSc, is more than a management course. Managers are responsible for planning, organising, leading and controlling functions within an organisation. But not all managers are leaders.

This postgraduate qualification will help you to develop a team culture of trust that delivers results; navigate teams through change with tenacity; address challenges innovatively and ethically and make positive decisions with confidence.

As well as those already in healthcare roles, this leadership course is useful for GP practice managers, pharmacy managers, healthcare directorate managers and managers in pharmaceutical companies.
