Online Leadership in Healthcare Courses

These are more than management courses. Managers are responsible for planning, organising, leading and controlling functions within an organisation. But not all managers are leaders.

Our Postgraduate Diploma and MSc courses 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.

This Postgraduate Diploma Will Help You To:

  • Develop a team culture of trust that delivers results
  • Navigate teams through change with tenacity
  • Address challenges innovatively and ethically
  • Make positive decisions with confidence

Solve Your Leadership Challenges

The course will include the opportunity to work with your peers and tutors to solve one of your real-life leadership challenges. You’ll submit your challenge anonymously and the chosen challenge will form the basis for an online round-table discussion for you and your group to analyse, debate and propose a solution. So you could be getting more than a qualification.

You can apply for the MSc in Leadership in Healthcare as a two-year course, firstly completing the Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits), followed by the MSc (60 credits).

Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership in Healthcare

You'll study 6 modules, each over 6 weeks.

  1. Leadership in Healthcare: Exploring the complexities of applying leadership theories in ‘real world’ healthcare settings.
  2. Developing Human and Organisational Potential in Healthcare Settings: Equipping you as a leader with the ability to develop and improve services by harnessing the human and organisational potential within healthcare organisations.
