Attendees will be able to learn more about the new part-time MSc International Healthcare Leadership (IHL), which was launched in the Middle East in 2017.

Dr. Stephen Brookes, director of the MSc IHL programme and senior fellow in public policy and leadership at the university, will lead the Masterclass and information session, supported by student counselors and advisors from the university's Middle East Centre in Dubai.
Masterclass: Leading our global future for healthcare
Healthcare leaders across the globe face constant and ever-growing demands across an increasingly multi-faceted healthcare system. Leaders need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to respond to these challenges. This Masterclass will explore how to lead across different levels of healthcare in a timely, cost-effective and seamless manner, giving prevention as much priority as treatment and considering how different healthcare systems can be better integrated across diverse primary, secondary and tertiary providers.

This can help in supporting a vision of championing healthier nations and allowing its leaders to share good practice with others and to learn from other systems across the globe.
