3 new healthcare-focused MSc programmes @imperialcollege

Imperial College London is launching 3 new healthcare-focused MSc programmes this fall. All programmes are chaired by Professor the Lord Darzi, and will be delivered on a part-time basis over 2 years, utilising block teaching weeks supplemented by self-guided study, which allows students to remain at work during their postgraduate studies.

The first programme, MSc Patient Safety, has been designed to equip students with foundational theories, practical knowledge, and lessons from real-world policy or improvement programmes in patient safety. The programme is being delivered in collaboration with high-profile organisations in patient safety and quality, including the NIHR Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC), one of two dedicated patient safety translational research centres in England, and many other organisations. The programme is suitable for those with an interest in healthcare safety and quality, and a background in clinical, policy or managerial roles.

The second programme, MSc Healthcare and Design, is an interdisciplinary programme that draws on the complementary knowledge and expertise of Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art. This programme aims to equip students from a wide range of professional practice backgrounds with the tools and techniques to develop their own disruptive ideas as well as instigate and lead innovation in healthcare systems, services and spaces. The Imperial MSc programme has been designed for clinicians and healthcare professionals, while the RCA progamme is aimed at design professionals.

The third programme aimed at healthcare professionals is the MEd and PG Diploma in Surgical Education. Aiming to challenge participants’ thinking and develop their practice as surgical educators, the programme offers a sound theoretical background to the principles of surgical education, an introduction to educational research methods, and the opportunity for intellectual growth and development within a challenging yet supportive environment. It is run predominantly face-to-face, enabling dynamic discussion amongst students and tutors, and fostering a community atmosphere from which to collaborate and develop educational interests.  The programme is designed for those with an interest in surgical education and who have clinical and/or educational background.
