If you are working, or aspiring to work, in a position of influence across the wider health and social care community, this MSc is for you. The programme is targeted at aspiring healthcare professionals who wish to apply for leadership and management positions within health and social care, as well as those already working as allied health professionals, clinical scientists, nurses or doctors. The course is also suitable for those working in a variety of non-clinical roles, for example commissioners, quality improvement managers, clinical auditors, risk management, team leaders, social workers, patient advocates, or in the voluntary sector. Three specialist pathways are available which enable you to tailor the programme to meet your individual needs:
- MSc Leadership Development (Clinical Leadership) is ideal if you work as a clinician and wish to focus on clinical leadership
- MSc Leadership Development (Leadership and Management) is for those who are working, or aspire to work, in a leadership or management role
- MSc Leadership Development (Medical Leadership and Management) is suitable for doctors, offering bespoke modules which provide a medical content and a business focus.
