Course summary

Be part of a digital health-ready workforce as the global market expands to reach a predicted £408 billion by 2025. Our online taught, PGCert, PGDip and MSc Digital Health courses, will equip you to work in the digitally-literate healthcare organisations of the 21st century.

This programme is only available as an online distance learning course, which provides high quality learning and teaching combined with flexible study.

It’s becoming increasingly important for doctors and healthcare professionals to be able to exploit digital opportunities in healthcare - improving patient outcomes, delivering safe care more efficiently and effectively, and bridging the gap between health and social care teams.

We’ll equip you with the knowledge and skills you’ll need to capitalise on digital health technologies to deliver community healthcare, particularly to disadvantaged, remote and rural patients, in a way that minimises risk while maximising access.

This course is delivered through distance learning, so you'll engage in a range of lectures, discussions and tutorials within an online environment.

Why study with us

  • You’ll develop an understanding of the pragmatic use of digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence/robotics and wearables, in the NHS.
  • Tailor your study to your career aspirations, professional or organisational needs and interests. Because this programme is online, you can fit your studies around your work and other commitments.
  • Each award threshold enables you to engage in a programme that suits you while building to a comprehensive knowledge base. Choose the relevant qualification to enhance your work in health or health technology industries.

Future careers

This course will equip you with the skills and knowledge you’ll need to thrive as healthcare evolves to take advantage of digital technologies. There’s an increasing need for digital-based healthcare solutions to meet the changing needs and expectations of patients, and to evolve with developments in information management and technology. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
