Course summary

The Professional Doctorate in Health and Social Care (ProfD HaSC) is an interdisciplinary, postgraduate level research programme which has been designed to meet the needs of senior health and social care practitioners who wish to develop and lead evidence-based interventions within their own sphere of practice.

The applied nature of the programme develops candidate's research capability and enables them to manage complex problems and advance their practice. It is an award at the highest academic level that is distinct from the PhD in that it fosters pioneering professional development relevant to the needs of the individual's professional working situation.

Teaching on the ProfD HaSC will be by a blended approach: some of the learning will take place in class at the UEA, whilst some sessions will be online. This is in recognition of student feedback from the first cohort, and the positive experiences to online learning that have been realised during the pandemic.

The Aims of the Professional Doctorate in Health and Social Care at the UEA

To advance the knowledge and practice of professionals through: Critical enquiry and evaluation of current literature, policies and practice; Critical reflection and evaluation on personal and professional development; Advanced academic enquiry leading to the generation of new knowledge at the forefront of their practice; Effective project management; Original research and advanced autonomous scholarship; Dissemination of original and creative insights to inform innovation and enhancement of health and social care.
