As our understanding of society’s complex and specialised healthcare needs increases, the more important effective, evidence-based management of health services becomes.
Our PhD in Healthcare Management will give you the opportunity to pursue your particular personal or professional interest in the leadership and improvement of health services, how they provide treatment for people with physical and mental illnesses, and how they can contribute to health improvement through targeted interventions.
Over the course of your studies, you will develop and enhance transferable skills such as problem solving, project management, and critical thinking that are valued in any professional setting.
Recent student research projects in Healthcare Management include research into patient and public involvement, data security in information systems, and improved methods for evaluating large capital expenditures in health care.
As part of our College of Human and Health Sciences, you will benefit from a dynamic and supportive research environment with many opportunities to make connections across disciplines and develop links with organisations and policy makers both in the UK and abroad. As such, you can be confident that your research will inform and be informed by the wider health and social care environment.
According to the most recent Research Excellence Framework in 2014-2021, over 75% of research carried out at the college was of international or world-leading quality.
You will be joining a university that is ranked first in the UK for postgraduate student satisfaction (What Uni 2017).
