Preparing for leadership
During years 2-4 of the programme students benefit from our expert-led Leadership Programme to help develop the skills they need to understand, collaborate and influence others in order to deliver significant advances in health and care.
This includes short immersions plus longer practical real-world projects with businesses and other organisations at the cutting edge of everything from medical devices, to life sciences, to vaccines. Students also learn about leadership theory and attend specially-convened seminars from senior figures in relevant areas of healthcare.
“Our Leadership Programme will give PhD students the chance to develop the practical skills they need to bring people together to use health data science to deliver much-needed innovations and advances in health and care,” Professor Peter Bannister
What our students say
“The main reason I wanted to do it was to see what it was like to work in an environment that had more of a business than a research style – it was great experience.” David Brind, University of Birmingham
