Health Services Management (M.Sc.)


Course Description

This course prepares students for middle and senior management positions in the health services. It is intended for suitably qualified applicants currently working in positions with planning or management responsibility in health service organisations. The course is multidisciplinary and open to all professions. The course harnesses the core values of commitment, caring and cooperation in professional clinical practice with management principles and methods relevant to the healthcare setting.

Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of interdisciplinary exchange within small group settings. Teaching is delivered through interactive sessions. Case studies, class discussion and online discussions facilitate the application of learning and ensure that the programme imparts a theoretical framework of understanding whilst maintaining a practical focus. The programme is continually updated to reflect developments occurring within our rapidly changing healthcare environment. A key feature within the programme is a relatively small class size, which optimises learning for individual students.

The programme offers a comprehensive coverage of subjects relevant to health services management. Modules include:

Year 1: Understanding the Healthcare Environment (comprising Population Health, Law, and Marketing); Managing People in Healthcare Organisations (comprising Management and Organisational Behaviour, Human Resources Management, and Organisational Development); Health Economics Information and Operations Management Research Methods.

Year 2: Health Policy; Strategic Management (comprising Strategic Planning, Change Management, Quality Management, Risk Management, and Organisation Theory); Comparative Healthcare (comprising Comparative Analysis, Healthcare Financing, Delivery of Care, and Healthcare Reform); Research Methods and Healthcare Ethics.
