UC's Health Sciences qualifications give health professionals, non-clinical members of the health workforce and others interested in the health sector or health issues the opportunity to examine critically a range of significant issues in health sciences, and where relevant to improve their professional practice.
The Master of Health Sciences allows you to put together a postgraduate programme of study across health-related disciplines, such as the functioning of the health system, from the management of health information to health in communities. The increasing focus on prevention and lifestyle change provides enormous potential for a refocusing of health strategies and allied areas such as education, sport and recreation, and local government.
The Master of Health Sciences (MHSc) is a research-inclusive qualification worth 240 points. Students are supervised by some world-leading researchers in the School of Health Sciences.
The MHealSc contains two parts:
The rapid expansion of information technology, combined with an escalating demand for health services and changing patterns of health care delivery, have had a major impact on the health sector. Advanced training in health information management is increasingly being sought by health sector administrators and managers, technical and support staff, and clinicians whose effective performance of their role is increasingly reliant on up-to-date and well-managed information.
UC offers a Doctor of Philosophy in Health Sciences.
Many graduates continue to work within their health profession while others work in health-related fields, the social services, or local or central government.
Start date: Monthly by arrangement with supervisor
