Overview

The MSc Healthcare Management and Leadership programme provides an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in relation to effectively managing and leading people, processes and practices within healthcare settings. Management and leadership in the health and social care sector is increasingly important both in the UK and worldwide, with the NHS promoting specific values and principles of care (Department of Health, 2010) and the World Health Organisation highlighting the need for managers and leaders to have appropriate skills and knowledge (WHO, 2007)

Designed specifically for existing and aspiring managers and leaders, through completion of this programme, students will develop skills to critically debate the challenges facing healthcare leaders, and the roles that clinicians, managers and the wider healthcare economy can play in reshaping healthcare services. It will also enable managers and leaders.to apply their learning to their workplace environment through practical and applied leadership case studies, debates and challenges.

It is a distinct programme in that it offers learning opportunities delivered by experts from Worcester Business School and healthcare staff from Schools across Health, Life and Environmental Sciences bringing together key theories of leadership and management with the specific relevance to health systems and social care.

This programme provides a developmental route for health care professionals who work at advanced level practice as managers and leaders within healthcare. It addresses the important factors influencing the management and leadership of both organisations and individuals. It aims to equip students with the knowledge, skills and resources to enable them to reach their full potential as managers and leaders. A flexible, multidisciplinary approach postgraduate achievement within a supportive environment enables students to learn with and from each other to develop professional networks, in addition to advancing their own practice.

Career opportunities

Almost all students are already in employment therefore the focus is on introducing more effective ways of working within your Trusts and employing organisations. The programme equips you to develop in your existing roles, within your area of practice and to progress into strategic and leadership roles. As part of the journey of professional and role development we encourage students to continue on their academic journey through access to a range of higher degrees including PhD, clinical doctorate and other taught doctorates.
