Programmatic Review of MSc Healthcare Management 

An external peer evaluation was recently conducted on the Institute of Leadership’s MSc in Healthcare Management. The programme underwent an external review on the 9th and 10th April 2015. The review team comprised two external independent reviewers and an internal RCSI academic representative. The two-day site visit involved meetings with staff and students from Ireland, Dubai and Bahrain as well as other internal and external stakeholders.
 

The programme was assessed under four main headings:

INDICATOR 1 – CURRICULUM
INDICATOR 2 – EFFICIENCY OF THE PROGRAMME
INDICATOR 3 – ACADEMIC STANDARDS OF THE GRADUATES
INDICATOR 4 – EFFECTIVENESS OF QUALITY MANAGEMENT AND ASSURANCE

The report, received on October 20th, was welcomed by the Institute of Leadership staff. The reviewers were very impressed with the standard and quality of the programme with commendations being given under all four domains. The reviewers commended the support they had received from the Institute of Leadership and RCSI Registry staff during the review process.  

Speaking after the accreditation process Professor Ciarán O’Boyle said “We are delighted at this external validation of our MSc programme. The Institute is committed to academic excellence and this outcome is a tribute to all of our staff involved in the programme and especially to the Programme Directors in Ireland, Dubai and Bahrain.”
