Health Care Policy and Management MSc/PGDip/PGCert


Course Description

The MSc Health Care Policy and Management, provides both theoretical frameworks and practical tools that can be applied to health systems in the UK and overseas, designed for senior managers, clinicians and policy makers working in or with health care organisations, or with an interest in developing their careers in this direction.

The MSc programme is offered on a full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 year) basis, and consists of four compulsory modules, two optional modules and a dissertation. Each module involves approximately 30 hours contact time. To aid those travelling from distance, modules are delivered in units (for example 5 consecutive days, or units of three and two consecutive days).

HSMC offers the opportunity to graduate with a specialism in a specific area of Health Care Policy and Management. In order to gain a specialism you should use your option modules (two x 20 credits) to focus on one of the following themes:

-Commissioning (‘Strategic Commissioning’ plus one of: ‘Public Service Procurement and Contracting’ and ‘Law, Regulation and Finance of Commissioning’)

-Quality and Service Improvement (‘Quality and Service Improvement in Health Care' and 'Quality and Innovation: approaches to improvement')

-Integrated Care ('Integrated Care: Policy and Theory and 'Integrated Care in Practice')

Alternatively, participants can select any two of these as option modules. Particpants may also choose from a range of more than fifty other approved modules from the broader school, college and university. Choices are subject to approval by the Programme Director, taking into account module availability, timetabling considerations and demand/viability.
