Overview



The Professional Doctorate in Health is a unique modular blended learning programme, 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 studying this programme you will develop your critical thinking about practice and health service delivery. In addition, you will address the key professional issues that define the work that takes place in practice, such as ethical matters and evidence and values-based 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. A Personal Development Adviser (PDA) supports learning throughout the programme. Your PDA will utilise learning needs analysis and personal development planning techniques to provide motivation.

Programme features
