University of Birmingham

This intercalated programme in Health Management and Leadership is one of the first of its kind in the UK, providing students with the opportunity to explore the ways in which management and leadership can shape health services.

All doctors are becoming increasingly engaged with management and leadership, whether they work in hospitals, general practice or in the community and whether they assume managerial responsibilities or not; for example, some doctors will, during their career, take on formal managerial responsibilities (eg. clinical director or medical director). This course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of management and leadership in health care settings.

Entry requirements

Applications for this programme will be accepted from students wishing to intercalate after year 3 or 4 of their medical studies, or year 2 for Dental students. Students must have obtained >60% in the second year of MBChB or BDS to be eligible. Applicants will be ranked on their year 2 mark and on their answers to the questions on the application form.

Please note: students who have failed to achieve 60% may still apply, but are required to demonstrate a significant upward academic trajectory or excellence in specific areas related to the proposed intercalation.
