Intercalated Degree in Healthcare Management and Leadership
As a medical or dentistry student, you may choose to take a year out from your medical course and study on one of the University's intercalated Bachelor in Medical Science degree programmes. During this year you will specialise in a particular subject, acquire skills in analysing and interpreting research papers and also gain substantial, direct experience of novel research.
HSMC delivers a Health Management & Leadership (HML) degree as part of the Population Sciences and Humanities (POSH) intercalated programme. The course consists of 3 specialist modules (health services management, leadership & change management; improving quality & patient safety), research methods module, research project design, and a research project.
HML has an exciting blend of research-active lecturers, external guest speakers and case-study visits. Assessments are varied: short and long essays, and team presentations.
This is how our recent students have described the course: For further details or an informal chat, please contact the course director Prof. Mark Exworthy
