Course Summary

The MSc Health Analysis, Policy & Management has been developed to equip you with practical, evaluative, and analytical skills to allow you to influence and develop strategy and performance in the healthcare sector.

The skills you'll learn are sought after for roles at different levels in organisations across the health sector, including in hospitals, health systems, healthcare consulting firms, governments, and other local and international health organisations. They're also useful tools for beginning an academic research career in the area.

Our academics are actively engaged in research and consulting work for UK and international health organisations, including the English and Scottish National Health Services in the UK. You'll work on summer projects relevant in this context and where possible for these organisations.

This unique course takes a ‘systems thinking’ approach to improving decision-making in healthcare in the UK and internationally.

Assessment

Classes are assessed by various methods, including written assignments, exams, practical team projects, presentations and individual projects. Exams will take place at the end of each semester in December and April/May.

Modules

This module will explore the generic problem solving process which underpins the provision of decision support. In particular, it'll consider the role of modelling in that process. The activities of problem structuring, data collection and analysis, identification and evaluation of options, communication and implementation of learning, findings and recommendations will each be discussed along with the issues pertaining to each of them. The skills taught in this module, which are broader than for only the healthcare sector, are extremely important for healthcare policy and management.
