About

Overview

Why study the  Health Care Policy and Management programme from the University of Birmingham?

  • The Health Services Management Centre (HSMC) is one of the UK’s leading centres for research, teaching, professional development and consultancy to health and social care agencies. For more than forty years, the Centre’s mission has been to strengthen leadership and management in health care, and to promote improved health and wellbeing.
  • HSMC has pioneered innovative approaches to personal and professional education. We deliver multi award winning national leadership programmes that have made a real difference to the working lives of staff and have improved patient care and experience across all healthcare settings.
  • HSMC is underpinned by a number of distinct principles developed by academic, policy and practice partners: n Recognition of the interdependence between applied research, teaching, evaluation and policy analysis n Emphasis on providing research-based analysis, development and teaching n A focus on developing sustainable national and international collaborations and networks to benefit policy makers, managers, staff, patients and service users.
  • A course at HSMC bridges the traditional divide between academic study and the worlds of policy and practice.
