From September 2011 UCL will be offering a new graduate programme for clinicians and healthcare managers. The programme is situated in the UCL School of Life & Medical Sciences, and organised by the Centre for Health Informatics & Multiprofessional Education (CHIME) with support from the Division of Medical Education (DoME). This flexible, interdisciplinary graduate award allows clinicians and managers to design a curriculum to meet their individual needs. The programme allows students to study at their own pace, making it feasible to combine study and full-time work. Modules associated with this programme may be taken individually for CPD, or accumulated towards a Certificate, Diploma or Masters in Health and Medical Sciences.
Students will assemble their programme of study from a library of modules drawn from diverse disciplines such as Health Informatics, Medical Education, Medical Law, Clinical Leadership, and a range of clinical specialties. The programme allows students to study at their own pace, making it feasible to combine study and full-time work. The programme incorporates 10 modules from the specialist Health Informatics programme which CHIME has run since 1999. This will appeal to clinicians and educators who want to understand the relevance of the principles and tools of informatics to clinical practice but are not interested in a specialist award.
CHIME will continue to offer taught graduate awards in Health Informatics (PGCert, PGDip and an MSc) by blended learning (90% online and 10% on campus). There are also opportunities for Health Informatics Research Degrees (MD, MPhil and PhD).
