Course Description

This contemporary programme has been designed for graduates from a healthcare background. It provides them with an in-depth knowledge of the dynamics of embedding an innovation culture within healthcare, and gain insights into the latest thinking on creative and practical implementation of new ventures within medicine.

Through research-lead teaching and experiential learning, students will build a detailed, critical and practical understanding of issues in innovation and in particular the adoption of innovation within the healthcare landscape. The programme will hold interest for those working in the Irish healthcare sector whether front-line management in the Health Service Executive (HSE), in the established pharmaceutical/medical devices industry, to entrepreneurs and institutional supporters of high-potential start-ups.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Healthcare Innovation is taught full-time, over one year and comprises of eight taught modules – six foundation modules, and two practical modules including workshops and a project. The programme will offer a fundamental grounding in key subjects such as design thinking and embedding a culture of innovation, process innovation, lean thinking and social innovation, innovation & health economics, healthcare, innovation and leadership. The Project modules will identify and plan, with a view to implementation, an innovative solution applicable to each participant’s workplace.
