Yamk Master’s Degree Programme in People-centred and Innovative Leadership in Health Services

DESCRIPTION OF THE STUDIES

The Master’s Degree Programme in People-centred and Innovative Leadership in Health Services conforms to the rapidly changing and constantly increasing number of competence requirements and demands in health care that aims to improve the health and well-being of populations, reduce inequalities and establish people-centred health services through an interdisciplinary approach. The programme is aimed at people who work in health care, social services or the third sector and who are interested in developing an evidence-based and people-centred practice, service design in integrated health services and/or innovative and collaborative leadership.

STRUCTURE OF THE STUDIES

The Master’s degree programme studies in People-centred and Innovative Leadership in Health Services consist of advanced professional studies (40 ECTS), elective studies (20 ECTS) and a master’s thesis (30 ECTS). The advanced professional studies include the following studies which all Diak’s Master School students must complete: Professional development and expertise 5 ECTS, Academic writing and research communication 5 ECTS, Research methods 5 ECTS and Research methods in practice 5 ECTS. In advanced professional studies, students can choose to focus on:

1 Evidence-based and people-centred health services 20 ECTS; or
2 Innovative and collaborative leadership 20 ECTS

Students can further expand their competence by choosing elective studies in English from the degree programme’s available elective modules or from other master’s degree programmes offered by European institutions of higher education belonging to the 3IN Alliance (https://www.3inalliance.eu/).

The Master’s thesis (30 ECTS) is a research and development project that serves the working life in the field of health care. The thesis is commissioned by a working life organisation but can also be an RDI (Research, Development and Innovation) project done for Diak. The thesis supports the development of independent research, analytical and critical reflection skills and self-management skills.
