Health Services Management

This programme provides an introduction to health policy and health service professionals, clinicians and managers, who anticipate taking on substantial management responsibilities or who hold management positions. The course is both analytical (tracing links or causalities) and �interventionist�, (tracing opportunities for intervention to change or capitalise on particular links or causalities).

Entry requirements

Participants are required to demonstrate a record of past educational achievement, and must have management experience. A degree or equivalent professional qualification is also desirable.

Course modules

Modules available are: health policy and strategy; health economics and management; management of human resources; accounting and financial management; operations management science; research methods.

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on written assignments (usually 3 - 4,000 words), related to each module. Assignments involve the application of management theory and method to �real-life� (including workplace) situations and issues and a review of the value of so doing. The aim is to assess how well candidates are able to integrate theory/method and practice.
