The MA – Healthcare Management is a two-year, part-time programme that combines study of subjects central to public management broadly with study of the issues that affect the management of health and hospital services in Ireland. It seeks to raise the level of analysis in healthcare management in Ireland and to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to manage effectively.
On completing the first year of the programme, students receive the interim award of a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Management. The second year of the course is divided into two semesters. In the first of these, students study three key subjects in healthcare management. In the second, students write a dissertation on a specific healthcare management issue. If you do not wish to take all three subjects in any particular semester, you may choose to study one or two on a phased basis.
