Lead future clinical change
Aging populations, greater patient expectations, rising healthcare costs and the growing prevalence of chronic disease – to meet these challenges, we urgently need smarter, more efficient healthcare systems. To make this a reality, we need decisive and innovative healthcare leadership from those who manage clinicians and clinical organisations.
The University of Birmingham’s online MBA Clinical Leadership offers healthcare leaders the opportunity to develop the high-level skills they need to respond to these challenges.
As part of our successful AMBA-accredited online MBA, this specialist programme covers the fundamentals of business leadership, but with an added focus on health services management. This makes the programme suitable for clinical or non-clinical staff looking to progress to senior healthcare management roles, as well as industry professionals keen to develop their business expertise.
