This MSc Leadership in Healthcare from University of Dundee takes account of leadership theory and evidence from other fields and disciplines, and in applying this knowledge, you will be encouraged to reflect on and develop your own personal leadership skills and values. Change is an integral component of leadership, so developing your understanding of the drivers for change and how to lead and implement change are also core components of the course.
Designed to offer flexible learning, this course is relevant to students across local, national and international healthcare settings. It is delivered by a team who have all held leadership roles in practice settings and educational contexts.
To achieve the MSc you will complete four modules and a dissertation. You will be taught via online distance learning, however, some masterclasses and assessment support sessions will be delivered locally and will be available for you to attend. For those who cannot attend, the masterclasses will be recorded, and support sessions will be delivered by web conference.
Our MSc courses are designed to support you to achieve career aspirations beyond your initial role. While almost all of our students are already in professional roles, students who have completed our masters courses in the past have moved on to management and other promoted posts, as well as specialist roles such as hospital at night and clinical governance leads.
Our aim is to help students become the leaders and experts of the future in health and social care, to be adaptable, confident and challenging in their approach, and to become the change agents in their professions.
