With the global market for digital health expected to reach almost £408 billion by 2025, there is huge impetus to create a digital health-ready workforce that is equipped to work in the digitally literate healthcare organisations of the 21st Century. It will be increasingly important that doctors and other healthcare professionals are able to exploit digital opportunities in healthcare to improve patient outcomes; to deliver safe care more efficiently and effectively and to bridge the gaps between different teams within health and social care.
The huge advances in healthcare that will flow from the revolution in biosciences and information technologies require a quantum change in how we approach the training of our future workforce. A broad understanding of the requirements of the current system and why this fundamental shift is required form the basis of our programme.
The MSc Digital Health is a modular programme wholly delivered digitally, allowing for a fully distance-based package of learning. Online tutors are available through either webinars or one to one online learning environments.
You will access downloadable podcasts with updated content on all of the key elements of the programme from national leaders in the NHS and digital fields. We will provide online assessment with rapid feedback and challenge
