Our Professional Doctorate is designed to enable advanced practitioners to lead and respond innovatively to the rapidly changing health and social care environment.
We develop leaders who can improve health and wellbeing through addressing local, regional and national concerns, and who have the ability to build evidence bases that inform policy and practice development.
You’ll develop skills in critical analysis, enquiry and research through core units of study with relevance to health and care professionals in practice, across the state, third sector and business sectors.
This will help you to form your own conclusions about the implications for your professional practice, and intervene in health and social care debates as appropriate.
We deliver this practice-based course in two phases. Phase one, in the first two years of study (part time) one year (full-time), involves the study of four core units and one option unit. We teach these units via blended learning, a mix of face-to-face teaching, and online, supervised and guided study.
In phase two, (years three-five part-time; years two and three full-time), you’ll undertake independent study under supervision, submitting your thesis of approximately 40,000 – 60,000 words.
