Professional Doctorate in Health


    About This Professional Doctorate

    Course Description

    Further your development as an expert health practitioner or researcher.

    Our DHealth course is well-suited to health and social care professionals looking to develop as practitioners and researchers in practice.

    This is a part-time distance-learning programme. By utilising web-based delivery, blended with Summer School (typically five days in length), the programme aims to meet the learning needs of busy health and social care practitioners.

    You will be able to:

    • choose your learning style within a flexible environment while benefiting from a multi-professional community
    • learn about research methods and conduct independent research whilst remaining in your practice area
    • expand your understanding of policy and practice in the context of international healthcare systems and service.

    "Supervising students on the PD Health is hugely rewarding. I enjoy guiding and facilitating my students to develop their research ideas and conduct their doctoral research projects. I feel that providing pastoral support is important, working with each student to codevelop the best study plan for them. Helping my students to further develop their research skills and see them grow in confidence toward becoming an independent researcher is hugely gratifying.”

    Dr Nikki Coghill, Doctoral Recognition Awards winner 2021
