Overview

WMG University of Warwick's Healthcare Operational Management has been designed to fulfil the specific needs and requirements of those interested in a management or leadership role within the complex health service sector.

The skills and knowledge to assess organisational performance and drive the development and implementation of innovation in healthcare organisations in order to facilitate improvement.

You will learn to evaluate effective programme components and systems, and gain a detailed understanding of quality systems management and the integration of healthcare technologies, systems, and processes within complex service systems.

Healthcare organisations share commonalities with production facilities, including the need for efficient process flow, change management, and quality standards.

You will learn to measure efficiency and improve effectiveness and productivity without compromising quality or safety.

Industrial visits are available to all students and the course is assessed through assignments.

Each module will usually last one week.
