MSc in Global eHealth: Under Development
A new online programme in Global eHealth is currently being developed under the auspices of the Centre for Population Health Sciences (CPHS) and the Global Health Academy. This modular and interdisciplinary programme will allow students to acquire in depth knowledge of eHealth from an international perspective and with reference to issues for global development. Foundational courses will cover key concepts and methods in health informatics, global health challenges, eHealth policies and international health systems. These will be complemented by a programme of interdisciplinary options covering digital health innovations with reference to effectiveness, sociological and cultural aspects of implementation, ethical and governance issues and business processes. While evidence-based eHealth will be a pervasive theme through the programme, completion of the module in Research Methods for eHealth will be a core requirement for progression to the MSc project. The course is expected to appeal to clinicians, eHealth implementation personnel, allied health practitioners, NGOs, eHealth policymakers, innovators and technologists, and academic researchers. All modules will be credit bearing and may be used towards a certificate, diploma or masters qualification, depending on the duration of study (one, two or three years).
The announce reads,"We have set up a short survey and would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in online postgraduate study in Global eHealth. Your feedback will help shape the content and structure of this new programme, and there is an opportunity to leave your contact details so we can keep you up to date on any developments."
