The MSc in Digital Transformation for Healthcare is designed to equip graduates with the digital healthcare knowledge and leadership skills needed to drive improvements in understanding, diagnosing, and managing patient-centred healthcare.

Globally we are witnessing both increased acceptance of, and demand for, new technologies in healthcare. With this demand comes the need for new professional skills and specific job roles that can deliver against these digitally-focused market trends. As a graduate of the MSc in Digital Healthcare Transformation you will be able to bridge the gap between physical and digital health provision by maximising the use of both existing and new technologies. You will develop the skills to interact with technology whilst understanding both the patient and clinical perspective.

This course will equip you with a unique set of transferable skills combining healthcare knowledge, data analysis, leading edge technology, and digital capability with the leadership skills to enable and sustain digital transformation within organisations. The main barrier to digital transformation is often not the technology itself, but bringing about change in individual and organisational behaviour which is the key focus of this new course.

Emerging technologies such as AI can be extremely powerful when applied in a healthcare context, but skilled personnel are needed to apply AI in the most effective and safe ways, in order to maximise the scope of its potential. You will utilise data and apply innovative digital technologies and AI to transform the way health and care services are offered, developing more efficient ways of working and supporting organisations to deliver more digitally augmented care pathways.

The course encourages transformative learning and incorporates research and industry experience inspired teaching throughout. As a student, you will gain the tools and knowledge required to innovate, integrate and adopt new technologies in order to bring about improvements in population and individual healthcare outcomes and delivery models.

As a graduate of Digital Transformation for Healthcare, you will have an array of career options. Multiple opportunities are emerging within the digital healthcare transformation landscape, enabling organisations to harness the power of digital technology to improve healthcare services and outcomes for patients.
