The MSc Health Sciences (Management) is designed to offer the opportunity for health practitioners and those working in health care organisations to focus on practices, policies and drivers in relation to their impact. The intention is to create the conditions in which students can reflect on issues that are relevant to their own professional work. The MSc Health Sciences (Management) course enables individuals to consider the implications of their learning, reading and enquiry for policy and practice in their own area of interest.
The aim of the course is to establish the conditions and standards for rigorous critical enquiry and to extend the criteria for judging taken-for-granted assumptions underlying policy and practice in the Health Management field. The MSc Health Sciences (Management) course will enable students to develop an increasing respect for evidence and discourse and the capacity to initiate and sustain change, both in their own practice and more generally within their professional context.
