This course aims to equip you with integrative thinking, combining intuition, analytic reason, and creativity, while recognising and enhancing your leadership capabilities within healthcare systems. The curriculum is designed to help you develop key competencies and capabilities, integrating a range of perspectives:

  • Managing strategically: create and articulate a vision for organisational strategy, working across business functions, systems and professional groups. Learn to develop operational plans, manage cultures and meanings, inspire people and renew organisations to create value, by adapting to dynamic contexts.
  • Leading innovation and systems: identify new solutions for current and future healthcare needs.
  • Leading people: learn to understand the essence of management and leadership; understand roles and leadership styles as a set of practices in context; build relationships and collaboration; facilitate teamwork and develop an awareness of individual needs and differences.
  • Consulting: develop and manage relationships with internal and external services; understand the brief, think creatively to develop solutions for complex and challenging problems and implement different options. Demonstrate impact, as well as excellent analytical, communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Applying economic thinking and financial awareness: understanding economic behaviour in the healthcare industry; using, prioritising, and allocating resources efficiently, with awareness of the financial implications of operational decisions and how these move strategic objectives forward.
  • Critical thinking and judgement: evaluate evidence and arguments in situations of complexity and use judgement in appraising the potential impact of initiatives in complex and dynamic social systems and competitive healthcare environments.
  • Research skills: undertake managerial research to identify tools, models, and frameworks for use in operational management and original research. Investigate health management issues using research methods, working comprehensively and methodically.

The course aims to develop your ability to work effectively with others within health systems, organisations and services. It encourages you to take a systematic approach, to think broadly and deeply about challenges in healthcare, and to reflect critically on your own performance, the performance of others, and the influence of global healthcare contexts.

Your assessments will be as practical as your learning, designed to reflect the real world of work. There will also be ongoing tutorials to ensure that both you and your tutors are always aware of how you’re progressing and where you may need extra support. This will also help you to develop your ability to assess your own progression, your performance, and your learning needs (which is a vital career skill).

Your learning will be assessed using a blend of seminars and workshop activities, debates, exams, presentations, written assignments, and individual and group programme work. This will help you to develop professional skills such as business report-writing, structuring a logical argument, data analysis, and making a compelling presentation.

 

Upon successful completion of the course you should feel confident about entering or returning to the health and social care sector with the knowledge and skills to enhance the efficiency and quality of service provision in your area.

You may also want to look at careers in related fields such as public and community health management, medical sales or third sector organisations, outpatient care and public health, executive roles in support services and many more roles in business and health.

If you exit the course at the Postgraduate Certificate level, you will have demonstrated original and critical application of knowledge and integrative management thinking within health services and organisations. Those of you who exit the course at the Postgraduate Diploma level will have demonstrated original and critical application of leadership skills and integrative management thinking within health services and across health systems.

You can expect to have 10 contact hours per week. These contact hours may be made up of a combination of face-to-face teaching, individual and group tutorials, and online classes and tutorials.

For tuition fee loans

Career prospects

Graduate Immigration Route visa

Based on current information from the UK Government, international students whose study extends beyond summer 2021 may be eligible for a visa under the UK Government’s Graduate Immigration Route, which will enable students to stay and work, or look for work, in the UK at any skill level for up to two (2) years. Check the most up to date guidance available to check your eligibility and any updates from the UK Government before making an application or enrolment decision.

This 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 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.

You’ll graduate with a leadership qualification in healthcare sector, offering you the possibility to work for the NHS, private healthcare organisations or academic institutions.

As part of the journey of professional and role development, students are encouraged to continue on their academic journey through access to a range of higher degrees, including PhD and other taught doctorates.
