Hospitals, Public Health bodies, and other healthcare agencies are large, complex organisations, that require a great deal of administration and effective management. Healthcare is heavily regulated, and a great deal of quality assessment and compliance work is needed to ensure that clinicians and other healthcare providers work to the guidelines set by central government. Working in this aspect of healthcare requires a particular blend of competencies, that can be attained through a degree in Healthcare Management. Essentially a sector-specific MBA, a Masters in Health Management (normally an MSc) provides a comprehensive education in the issues affecting healthcare providers, public policy regarding health, strategic planning, organisational development, and care quality assessment. Health Management is well-suited to those who have already embarked upon a career in healthcare administration and wish to improve their qualifications, or for those who are already planning on following a career of this kind.
