UGBS To Equip Clinical Staff with Management and Leadership Skills

As part of their mandates to develop quality human resource capacity and leaders through the provision of world class management education, the University of Ghana Business School has introduced a programme to equip clinical staff (e.g. Doctors, Nurses, Midwives, and Pharmacist etc.), allied health staff (e.g. Laboratory/investigations Professionals, Biostatisticians, Biomedical Engineers, Housekeeping etc.), and other health professionals with appropriate leadership and management skills for effective functioning at the clinical/hospital/health facility level.

The programme, MSc Clinical Leadership and Management,  is a one-year sandwich programme taken over a period of two semesters, allowing students to keep their full time jobs while pursuing a master’s degree. Lectures will be held in June every year and examinations written in August the same year.

Health professionals play important management and leadership roles at the facility level. However, many of them have not received management and/or leadership training that equips them with the critical skill-sets to function effectively.

Thus, to fill this capacity gap, the Department of Public Administration and Health Services Management (PAHS) has in consultation with the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service, introduced Master of Science in Clinical Leadership and Management Programme.

The programme seeks to equip participants with the needed leadership and management competences to address routine problems, especially at the clinical/health facility level.

This innovative programme is designed for professional healthcare workers who are keen to learn more about leadership and management techniques. Admission requirements is a good first degree from a recognised and accredited university in Ghana and elsewhere with at least a 2nd class lower division.

The programme is set to be enrolled in the 2018/19 academic year. The university opened for applications from qualified candidates on 2nd January, 2018.

Application e-voucher can be obtained by Ghanaian applicants for GH¢ 200.00 at the following banks: Zenith Bank, Universal Merchant BankEcobank, HFC Bank, Agricultural Development Bank, Unibank, Ghana Commercial Bank and Fidelity Bank. Applicants should follow carefully the instructions on the voucher when completing the ONLINE APPLICATION FORM.
