Developing the next leaders in healthcare
At the Institute of Global Health Innovation, we run several educational programmes that feature teaching from experts in the field. Many of our courses are suitable for professionals working in healthcare or allied with healthcare systems. Due to this, we offer the flexibility to study part-time.
Our courses are run by Imperial College London together with our partners for some specific programmes.

MSc Patient Safety
Patient safety has become an increasing topic of focus at all levels of the health system, domestically and internationally. And in the UK, the focus on patient safety has never been stronger. In the past five years, milestones such as the NHS Patient Safety Strategy have catapulted the patient safety agenda to the forefront of UK healthcare. Our MSc in Patient Safety has been designed specifically to support policymakers and clinical and managerial healthcare professionals to deliver safe care and champion for safer health systems.
MSc Healthcare and Design
This programme, run by our Helix Centre, has been specifically designed to suit professionals working in or allied to the healthcare system, or those with experience of the healthcare space who wish to develop the skills to advance an entrepreneurial idea. The programme has been developed for part-time delivery, allowing you to attend without having to take a year out of your career. We also encourage you to complete your research in your own place of work (under Imperial's supervision), allowing you to embed the knowledge and skills you have learned into your own area of practice.
MSc Health Policy
IGHI is working to identify new, high-quality and sustainable business models for delivering health care for future generations. This part-time course is hosted by our Centre for Health Policy. It offers a chance for those working in the health sector, such as government officials, clinicians, NHS managers and employees of health industry and consulting companies, to learn from international experts on important aspects of health policy.
MRes Medical Robotics and Image-Guided Intervention
Medical robotics and image-guided intervention are two technology-led areas of medicine that have experienced tremendous growth and improvement over the last 20 years. This has been driven partly by improving less invasive surgical treatments.
This course makes the most of our Hamlyn Centre’s unique research facilities and multidisciplinary environment. Students will learn about this field through taught courses and then apply their knowledge and skills to medical and surgical problems in a nine-month research project.
What’s it like to study our Masters in Patient Safety?
Meet Max Denning
What did you most enjoy about your course?
I particularly enjoyed the diversity of perspectives that students and faculty brought to the course. Students came from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds, the public and private sector, as well as different life and career stages. Similarly, the faculty came from a range of academic disciplines and taught varied techniques to think about and solve difficult problems. This variety resulted in great class discussions and learning opportunities, especially during group projects.
What did you most appreciate about the Faculty/College?
The way in which the college responded to Covid-19. Despite a huge amount of uncertainty, the college adapted quickly to the Covid-19 restrictions to ensure we had a great learning experience despite being online. The faculty also did so in a manner that was compatible with the schedules of students, many of whom were also working in clinical settings during the pandemic.
How did it feel to receive the Dean's Prize?
Fantastic, albeit totally unexpected. I very much see it as a team effort thanks to the support I received throughout the course from the faculty and my dissertation supervisor.
What are you doing now/What do you plan on doing after graduation?
I am currently pursuing an MBA at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Following my MBA, I hope to move into a role where I can combine my clinical, academic and business interests to improve access to high quality, safe healthcare.
