Course Overview

If you're already, or would like to be, a leader or manager in a health or social care setting, our Masters course will develop and polish the skills you need to progress and be highly effective in your role.

Management and leadership in the health and social care sector is increasingly important worldwide, with The World Health Organization highlighting the need for managers to have appropriate competencies (WHO, 2007) and the NHS promoting specific values and principles of care (Department of Health, 2010).

Our course is designed to make sure you gain the knowledge, skills and emotional tools you need to meet these requirements and develop your full potential as a manager. You'll explore the important social and other factors which influence managing and leading both organisations and individuals, learning with other current and aspiring managers and leaders from a range of health and social care organisations from around the world.

Core Modules

Advanced Professional Decision Making

Advance your decision making skills through critical reflection and the help of a “critical friend”. This is a specialist module designated for our Management and Leadership in Health and Social Care course.

Current health and social care policy, along with the modernisation of the NHS and other international models, demands new ways of working across traditional boundaries and the implementation of national targets at local level.

This requires the development of roles for confident, autonomous practitioners, who possess the knowledge and skills to implement complex decisions in a rapidly changing environment, and to play key roles in service development.

You’ll need to be able to utilise practical decision making skills within an area of professional knowledge and develop strategies to facilitate the implementation of the outcomes of the decision making process into practice. This can be individually or within a team or organisation. In addition, management of change and service development are seen as core elements of the module, together with the enhancement of professional judgement and leadership.

Organisational Transformation in Health and Social Care

Here, you’ll critically explore change theory in relation to your own field of practice, and demonstrate understanding of the theoretical and philosophical components of organisational transformation.

This module encourages the synthesis of strategic discourse with operational application as modes of organisational structures thereby forming strong links between theory and practice. You’ll be expected to demonstrate an ability to isolate and focus on the significant features of problems and offer synthetic and coherent solutions.

It’s expected you’ll produce original or innovative work relating to your specialism that’s worthy of publication, public performance or display.

Research Studies

This module is designed to provide you with a critical overview of the main methodologies and designs applied to research within health and social care, professional practice, regulation and policy.

It provides you with an opportunity to explore the theoretical dilemmas that lie beneath the process of inquiry and its relationship to practice. The module will provide a framework within which to select, evaluate and justify the research methods chosen for your research project.

Major Project

The major project is of central importance to the Masters award. You’ll be expected to bring together aspects of learning from previous modules, as well as using the learning as the basis for planning, conducting and writing a research or work-based project.

This module will support you in your preparation and submission of a Masters level major project (either a research project or work-based project). There will be eight hours of workshop support available to you during the module. This will be delivered as four, two-hour workshops. In addition, there’ll be a full-day introductory workshop before the module commences.

You’ll be allocated a minimum of six hours individual supervisory support, with additional supervisory support negotiated between you and your supervisor.

Optional Modules

You’ll also choose from ONE of the following 30 credit modules...

Global Leadership (30 credits)

Businesses, whether private, public or third sector, operate in a world facing a range of urgent global issues. This module examines the fitness of businesses and individuals to tackle such issues, based on the Global Leadership model developed by lecturers at this university.

This module consists of four elements:

Effective decision making
Adoption of a global approach
Creation of a new business paradigm
Creation of a contemporary mission.

It also considers the related concept of mis-leadership, which looks at how leaders have often failed to achieve the optimum outcomes for those they lead. Leaders predominantly create context and this module will explore the skills required to successfully mould and develop the context in a chaotic environment.

Law and Ethics in Social Care (30 credits)

This module will give you a detailed and critical understanding of the generic ethical and legal theories and principles that underpin health and social care (e.g. consent, confidentiality, duty of care, human rights).

You’ll also have the opportunity to focus on particular aspects of law and ethics that have relevance to your practice or personal interest (e.g. mental health, data protection, negligence, resource allocation, and medical research). This module is particularly relevant to health and social care professionals looking to develop crucial insights into legal and ethical issues in practice.

Collaborative Practice in Integrated Care (30 credits)

The role of individuals is a central part of the government's agenda for modernisation, as evidenced by the creation of consultant practitioners posts (e.g. consultant nurse and consultant therapist). These posts function across professional and organisational boundaries, and provide strategic direction to their particular area of expertise.

Equally, in social work, closer links are being forged in terms of policy, practice and organisations. Implementing this policy is often fraught with difficulties. This module seeks to address some of the most salient issues.

Assessment

How you’re assessed will vary between modules. This is in order to assist you in developing submission evidence for Management and Leadership professional recognition later. Assignments include the production of report, essays and portfolio. For the Masters, a major project of no more than 18,000 words is also required.

Make future breakthroughs within healthcare with the MSc Biomedical Engineering with Healthcare Technology Management course.

Who is it for?

This course is for inquisitive students who want to design, develop, apply or even manage the use of cutting-edge methods and devices that will revolutionise healthcare. It is open to science and engineering graduates and those working within hospitals or related industry who want to work in healthcare organisations, in the medical devices industry, or in biomedical engineering research.

The course will suit recent graduates and/or clinical engineers with a technical background or those working in healthcare who want to move into a management position.

Objectives

With several medical conditions requiring extensive and continuous monitoring and early and accurate diagnosis becoming increasingly desirable, technology for biomedical applications is rapidly becoming one of the key ingredients of today and tomorrow’s medical care.

From miniaturised home diagnostic instruments to therapeutic devices and to large scale hospital imaging and monitoring systems, healthcare is becoming increasingly dependent on technology. This course meets the growing need for biomedical and clinical engineers across the world by focusing on the design of medical devices from conception to application.

One of the few accredited courses of its kind in London, the programme concentrates on the use of biomedical-driven engineering design and technology in healthcare settings so you can approach this multidisciplinary topic from the biological and medical perspective; the technological design and development perspective; and from the perspective of managing the organisation and maintenance of large scale equipment and IT systems in a hospital.

This MSc in Biomedical Engineering with Healthcare Technology Management course has been created in consultation and close collaboration with clinicians, biomedical engineering researchers and medical technology industrial partners. The programme fosters close links with the NHS and internationally-renowned hospitals including St. Bartholomew's (Barts) and the Royal London Hospital and Great Ormond street so that you can gain a comprehensive insight into the applied use and the management of medical technology and apply your knowledge in real-world clinical settings.

Placements

In the last few years there have been some limited opportunities for our top students to carry out their projects through placements within hospital-based healthcare technology groups or specialist London-based biomedical technology companies. Placement-based projects are also offered to selected students in City’s leading Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering (RCBE). As we continue our cutting-edge research and industrial and clinical collaborations, you will also have this opportunity.

Academic facilities

As a student on this course you will have the opportunity to work with cutting-edge test and measurement instrumentation – oscilloscopes, function generators, analysers – as well as specialist signal generators and analysers. The equipment is predominantly provided by the world-leading test and measurement equipment manufacturer Keysight, who have partnered with City to provide branding to our electronics laboratories. You also have access to brand new teaching labs and a dedicated postgraduate teaching lab. And as part of the University of London you can also become a member of Senate House Library for free with your student ID card.

Teaching and learning

You will be taught through face-to-face lectures in small groups, where there is a lot of interaction and feedback. Laboratory sessions run alongside the lectures, giving you the opportunity to develop your problem-solving and design skills. You also learn software skills in certain modules, which are taught inside computer labs. We also arrange hospital visits so you gain hands-on experience of different clinical environments.

We arrange tutorials for setting coursework, highlight important subject areas, conduct practical demonstrations, and offer support with revision. You are assessed by written examinations at the end of each term, and coursework assignments, which are set at various times throughout the term.

You also work towards an individual project, which is assessed in the form of a written thesis and an oral examination at the end of the summer. The project can be based on any area of biomedical engineering, telemedicine or technology management and will be supervised by an academic or clinical scientist with expertise in the subject area. Many projects are based in hospital clinical engineering departments, or if you are a part-time student, you can base the project on your own workplace. You will have regular contact with the supervisor to make sure the project progresses satisfactorily. Some of the programme’s current students are working on a project focusing on devices that use brain signals to move external objects such as a remote control car and a prosthetic arm.

Some of the previous projects students have worked on include:
-A cursor controller based on electrooculography (EOG)
-Modelling a closed-loop automated anaesthesia system
-Design of a movement artefact-resistant wearable heart rate/activity monitor
-Review of progress towards a fully autonomous artificial mechanical heart
