Course summary

This is a part-time distance-learning programme (it can be completed in four, or up to eight years). Students who exit the programme before achieving a DHealth award may be eligible for other exit awards. These are the Postgraduate Certificate, the Postgraduate Diploma, or the MSc Research in Health Practice (3 years), depending on the number of credits achieved at the time of exit.

Overview

The Professional Doctorate in Health is designed for a range of health and social care professionals who are interested in furthering their development as expert practitioners and researchers in practice. By utilising web-based delivery blended with Summer Schools (typically five days in length), the programme aims to meet the learning needs of busy health and social care practitioners.

During the first two years of study you will complete a series of units covering research methods, evidence based practice, comparative health policy and other topics relevant to research in practice. Throughout the first two years you will also be developing a protocol for your doctoral research project. Unlike the PhD programme, we do not expect you to have a well-developed research protocol before commencing your studies. Your Personal Development Adviser (PDA) will work with you to develop your research plans, before handing over to an academic and practice-based supervisor during the second year.

Programme features

Carry out independent research and understand research methods whilst remaining in your practice area. Choose your learning style within a flexible environment amongst a multi-professional community. Expand your understanding of policy and practice in the context of international healthcare systems and service.
