Digital technologies and methodologies are considered by healthcare providers worldwide as key to meeting the significant challenges in delivering healthcare in today’s society. This has created a pressing need for a bright, well-educated and flexible workforce capable of using, evaluating and designing these technologies, with a thorough understanding of the clinical, engineering, ethical and social constraints surrounding them.
Digital healthcare concerns the development of interconnected health systems to promote the use and advancement of smart devices, new technologies, analysis techniques and communication media to help professionals and patients manage illness, enhance the performance of patient monitoring devices, improve clinical education, manage healthcare risks and promote wellbeing.
The Institute of Digital Healthcare at WMG, University of Warwick has developed this innovative Masters programme – we believe the first in the world to authoritatively review all these issues and enable students to synthesise them into a comprehensive, coherent and career-advancing experience. The MSc will give our students the skills needed to drive, manage and evaluate the advances in technology and methods that underpin digital healthcare.
