This short online Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) in Healthcare Management course is the perfect introduction to mixing the challenging worlds of both health and management.*
Throughout the programme, you’ll gain awareness of topical healthcare subjects whilst starting to build links with contemporary healthcare problems and their interaction with business and management. You’ll also gain a fundamental understanding of management topics including finance, human resource management and business management. You will learn to recognise the key contemporary challenges associated with healthcare management as well as how to communicate your ideas both orally and in the context of a written presentation.
In addition to the subject-specific knowledge that you’ll gain, you will also develop a wide range of transferable, career-related skills including the ability to understand data, solve problems and learn how to confidently communicate and discuss issues in a professional environment.
With an indicative study duration of 16 months, this programme can be completed as a stand-alone qualification or used as a stepping stone towards our full BSc (Hons) Healthcare Management degree.
