We offer two types of research degree: a Health Services Management MPhil and PhD. Prospective applicants for research degrees in any aspect of health service management and health care policy are invited to apply, outlining their special interests. As part of their application, candidates will need to submit an outline proposal of their research topic. All research degree programmes may be undertaken either by full-time study or, for home and EU students only, by part-time study.
HSMC offers the opportunity to study for research degrees in a wide variety of topics relating to health services policy and management, including:
Leadership and organisational development Patient experience and public involvement Partnerships, collaboration and integration Clinical and strategic commissioning Quality and innovation in service provision HSMC staff bring their wide knowledge of UK and international health systems (gained through research and consultancy activities, as well as their own professional experience) to their teaching and tutorial support for students. This emphasis on combining theory and practice is maintained throughout all of our programmes.
The entry requirements for an MPhil are a good Honours degree or equivalent. Post-qualification experience will also be taken into account when considering applicants. Possibilities exist for transfer to a PhD programme from an MPhil programme.
