Leadership in Healthcare

University of Dundee


City Campus, Off campus


The course takes account of leadership theory and evidence from other fields and disciplines, and in applying this knowledge, you will be encouraged to reflect on and develop your own personal leadership skills and values. Change is an integral component of leadership, so developing your understanding of the drivers for change and how to lead and implement change are also core components of the course.

Designed to offer flexible learning, this course is relevant to students across local, national and international healthcare settings. It is delivered by a team who have all held leadership roles in practice settings and educational contexts.
