Course content

Digital Health is one of the fastest growing economic sectors worldwide. There's significant potential for the transformation of health care through better and widespread use of digital technologies. This includes a growing role for technology in supporting people to monitor and manage their own health and wellbeing. (The King's Fund 2022)

The global digital health market is expected to earn $149.9 billion in 2022 as against $128.80 billion earned in 2021, reflecting a 16.3% growth, said leading financial educational hub StockApps.com, citing a Statista report. (Zawya 2022)

This one-year Masters degree is the perfect conversion pathway for recent graduates looking to move into the health and care sector. It's also ideal for existing health and social care practitioners looking to up-skill in digital innovation and move into leadership and transformational roles.
