This allows you to continue with your current working commitments whilst studying at a pace that suits your busy lifestyle.


The programme aims to:

  • Provide an innovative programme which develops core knowledge and understanding of the theoretical and conceptual frameworks which underpin healthcare and
  • improvements in its delivery.
  • Present sound academic theories and concepts that are applicable in any healthcare setting and in any country.
  • Provide students with a detailed understanding of individual and organisational behaviours, the ability to synthesise, utilise and implement evidence gathered from diverse sources, and give insight into the range of techniques and tools available to support healthcare organisations and their management.
  • Develop skills in strategy and development and decision making within the context of the workplace environment where the skills will be applied, thereby resulting in microtransformations in health service delivery through action leaning.
