About Healthcare Leadership at University of Liverpool Online Programmes

Learn how to inspire others, drive innovation, and lead effectively within healthcare organisations with this part-time, fully online Healthcare Leadership MSc from the University of Liverpool

Through our unique interdisciplinary programmes, you will have the opportunity to explore leadership and management concepts, models and frameworks and learn how to apply them to healthcare environments, from a small practice to larger settings, of both a clinical and non-clinical nature.  

In addition to learning how to lead at an individual, team, organisational and national levels, you will gain an understanding of key contemporary issues within changing healthcare contexts and the ability to recommend innovative and high-quality solutions. 

Is this the right course for you?  

On this programme, you will be able to explore leadership and management theories, models, and concepts, and learn how to apply them within a healthcare setting. You will gain advanced knowledge of health organisations and the changing context in which they operate, combined with an ability to effectively lead your team, and make strategic decisions.  

Towards the end of the programme, you will undertake a project to evaluate the impact of a particular aspect of organisational change, and how that contributes to improvements within healthcare services.

  • Experience a unique interdisciplinary programme. Our Healthcare Leadership programmes are delivered in collaboration with the School of Medicine at the University of Liverpool, one of the largest medical education providers in the UK.

What students think about University of Liverpool Online Programmes

    Peter Van Den Plas, Netherlands

    The best experience while studying at the University of Liverpool online was studying with people all over the world. Just studying for the master's at the University of Liverpool opened new opportunities for my career.

    Samuel Bitariho, Burundi

    The University of Liverpool is one of the best and most recognised institutions in the World. To study online at the University of Liverpool gave me socially a positive consideration in my organisation but also in my country. My best experience while studying my course was the way they welcome people, the good work environment, students’ and lecturers’ interaction. Apart from the knowledge I got during my course, after getting my master's degree, many things have changed in my career especially in terms of job position, responsibilities and promotion.

    Jasbir Virdi, Canada

    I did my studying online. However, I made some great contacts with both students and professors from all over the world who are still in contact. This happened during classroom discussions and group assignments. The master's degree has given me extra confidence to excel in my career.
