University of Dundee

This is a great opportunity to do and study improvement with clinical teams in a wide range of community or hospital settings.

Improvement Science requires a genuine partnership between academics and front-line practitioners.  This is a key emerging area of interest for the NHS, and explores the use of systems based approaches (some of which have their origins in engineering and aviation) to sustainable improvement for patients and professionals in all branches of the health service.

This programme gives you an opportunity for applied research that translates into direct benefits for patient care. You will work with a clinical team on doing an improvement project and on using research methods to study the barriers and facilitators to improvement. We will help you to identify a clinical team in community or hospital care depending on your interests. Learning about improvement in the workplace will develop your skills in creativity, resilience, influencing and systems thinking.
