In your first year, we’ll give you a firm grounding in health, management, research and policy concepts so that you’ll have a comprehensive understanding of the way in which healthcare operates in the UK.

You’ll also start learning about epidemiology, the science that studies the patterns, causes and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations.

In year two, you’ll move on to the key principles of management and how they’re applied in health and research.

In your final year, you’ll look at more advanced management concepts, explore healthcare financing options and tackle your own major research project.

We’ve seen how such research can inspire important pieces of work. For instance, one of our Health Services Management students, on secondment from the London Ambulance Service, produced an acclaimed thesis on improving the service’s call-out efficiency. Some of his 
recommendations were later implemented by the service.
