Our online Healthcare Quality Management programme allows you to work towards advanced postgraduate qualifications that will support career moves to senior management positions.

We offer a series of Biomed Online modules for health sector employees who want to keep up to date with latest developments in healthcare quality management and related subjects. You can study these individually for your continuing professional development (CPD) or follow a specific pathway to work towards a postgraduate award (PGCert / PGDip / MSc) in Healthcare Quality Management. The awards require a combination of optional and compulsory modules that focus on application in practice within a framework of governance and risk management. For the MSc, you will need to complete four online courses within three to five years plus a workplace-based project.

Our modules are supported by a consortium of NHS Trusts, Pathology Joint Ventures, Public Health England and the University of Greenwich. Each module comes with full support from an experienced practitioner and has been approved by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the leading body for current practitioners in the field.

Additional info Students complete two modules for a PG Cert in Healthcare Quality Management, or four modules for a PG Diploma in Healthcare Quality Management. See the pathway options. Students undertaking the full MSc must also complete a workplace-based project.

The modules available for this programme are shown below. The spread over five years is an example of how the study can be completed. There is flexibility for completion in a shorter or longer timeframe – maximum 3 years for PG Cert; 5 years for PG Dip; 7 years for the full MSc.
