This unique course is clinically focused and disease specific. You’ll develop a critical understanding of the research, policies and practice relating to long-term conditions in various organisational contexts.
Studying and discussing the difficulties faced by people living with long-term health conditions will enhance your intellectual and practical skills.
And we’re dedicated to educating them. We have strong links with other health departments at the University, including the School for Health and Related Research (ScHARR), the Department of Sociological Studies, the Medical School and the Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth.
The school is close to the central University campus, opposite the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. You’ll be at the heart of student life with West Street, Broomhill and the best students’ union in the country on your doorstep.
Because we work closely with our partners in health and social care, your course will equip you with the skills employers are looking for. All our courses are research-led, shaped by local, national and international policy. They’re designed to be flexible, to meet the demands of a rapidly changing work environment.
We teach the skills you need to establish research and education initiatives in health and social care wherever in the world you are needed. Through our partnerships with other organisations, you’ll get the chance to network and make useful contacts.
