The Leadership for the Health Professions (Distance Learning) is a part time course that will suit you if you are a teacher, researcher, doctor, nurse or other health professional at any stage of your career (including trainees) and you have a leadership or management role or aspire to one.

Key Features of Leadership for the Health Professions (Distance Learning)

The Leadership for the Health Professions (Distance Learning) programme is a modular, flexible interprofessional programme which has been designed specifically for busy professionals as an online, distance learning programme in order to enable students across the world to develop their leadership and management skills and understanding. There are two entry points each year in September and January. The Leadership for the Health Professions (Distance Learning) course is delivered primarily using the BlackBoard online learning platform and you will need access to good wifi or broadband in order to fully engage with the multimedia course materials.

The Leadership for the Health Professions (Distance Learning) programme provides theoretical and practical leadership development, focussing on developing understanding of leadership and management at three levels: the intrapersonal (understanding yourself and developing yourself as a leader), the interpersonal (working with and leading others, groups and teams) and the organisational/system level (looking at complexity and change). Our approach to leadership development aims to provide you with a broad-based theoretical and conceptual framework which you can use to apply to your own, others and organisational leadership and management practical situations. We take a unique, case study approach where we consider all aspects of health professionals’ activities from a leadership and management perspective. You can register for the full master’s course, for the PGDip or PGCert levels or for individual modules as an Associate student.

The world of medical education has presented many new challenges in the last ten years, and continues to do so. Most clinicians engage in some form of teaching, whether on wards, in clinics or through other teaching opportunities with undergraduate students and/or trainees. However, few of them have had the opportunity for professional development in teaching.

This part time course seeks to aid the development of those medical educators. It combines study days, workplace based assessments, research skills training and teaching practice. The course has a strong emphasis upon professional practice and is designed for those who have teaching roles that bring them into contact with students. It is suitable for those doctors new to medical education and training, as well as those with experience.

Manchester is one of the leading centres in medical education and has a national and international reputation for high quality research in the field.

The course team are experienced in education, medical and healthcare. Programme Directors are Dr Don Bradley and Dr Leena Patel.

This course will appeal to doctors who actively contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate education and/or training. Participants enrolling on the course include:
-Consultants from hospitals and NHS trusts

This programme offers the opportunity to study all aspects of Simulation as way of providing education and training to others, whilst grounding it firmly in a sound evidence based knowledge of educational theory and practice. You will have the opportunity to study all aspects of the theory and practice of health and medical education in the workplace, the design, and delivery of scenarios and simulation sessions, planning simulation facilities, programming simulators. You will also have the opportunity to study medical emergencies and managing risk, leadership and teamwork, business skills, and evidence based practice.

What are the key skills that I will gain?

On a masters programme you will gain many different skills and a lot of knowledge. The main aims of this programme is to:
-Provide you with the knowledge and skills required to utilize high and low fidelity simulation as a training and educational tool to improve the knowledge and skills of participants
-Enable you to empower others to transfer learning acquired in simulation scenarios to the workplace in order to improve services and increase patient safety
-Enable you to evaluate the effectiveness of your teaching in simulation on the knowledge and skills of other health care practitioners in order to increase patient safety and improve the quality of services
-Enable you to critically appraise best evidence in order to inform your educational and training practice in simulation

Is this for me?

If you are involved in the provision of medical or healthcare simulation then this programme has a route for you. As a clinician you may be from a medical or other healthcare background where you are involved in the provision of training and education which would benefit from the utilisation of simulation, or you may already be using simulation as an education or training tool. If you do not have a clinical background you may be interested in the technical side of simulation, and the leadership and business acumen that might benefit you in your role. There are a range of modules and awards within the MSc that would add to your professional development in the field.

Dissertation

The award of an MMedSci follows successful completion of the taught modules which make up the Diploma in Medical Science and submission of a further 60 credits worth of learning. This latter may be a research dissertation in a subject related to the individual’s speciality, in which case all candidates will also be expected to have completed the Research Methods and usually the Statistics and Epidemiology modules. A practice-based project is another possibility such as evaluation of changes implemented in a clinical setting, educational projects, or exploration of ethical dilemmas. It is expected to be a significant piece of work and we encourage all students to consider aiming for publication of their findings.

All candidates will be expected to have a local clinical supervisor for their project and educational supervision will continue to be provided by the award team. Previous experience has shown us that this is an extremely popular component of the Degree. Candidates have often published or presented their dissertation at Regional and National meetings.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines we do not anticipate any additional costs for this postgraduate programme.
