On the 75th birthday of the UK’s NHS, a student and NHS clinician in Oxford's new MSc in Global Healthcare Leadership Programme says innovation is crucial.
Dr Nargis Islam, a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Lead for Psychological Therapies Inpatient Services for Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, and MSc in Global Healthcare Leadership student said: ‘Innovation is key to the NHS meeting the changing health and mental health needs of our populations. Innovation is particularly crucial to develop and evidence effective interventions that meet the needs of the diverse communities we service across the UK. Bringing together cross disciplinary learning from clinicians, service users, industry, the medical and behavioural scientific community, and regulators has the potential to develop systems and services that benefit service users and overall population health.’
Launched last September, the MSc in Global Healthcare Leadership programme (MGHL) is delivered in partnership with Oxford University’s Saïd Business School and the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences. This unique programme, developed for both clinicians and healthcare business leaders alike, is equipping its first cohort with advanced skills, knowledge, and resilience to lead effective, efficient healthcare in an increasingly complex system. The unique partnership between one of Europe’s leading business schools and one of the world’s most important primary care centres, means the programme seamlessly blends both medical and business perspectives.
