The Faculty of Health Sciences, in collaboration with School of Nursing and Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, School of Business and School of Policy Studies, has launched a Master of Science in Healthcare Quality program at Queen’s University.
“The Healthcare Quality program is the first of its kind to specialize in linking theory and practice in quality, risk and safety in healthcare,” says Dr. David Goldstein, Co-Director of the program. “We are excited to offer this program to law, engineering, business, healthcare, administration, and policy professionals who are working to advance quality and safety in the healthcare system and related fields.”
This new graduate program in quality, risk and safety in healthcare has been designed as a distance-learning, two-year, part-time program for professionals who wish to continue their education, while continuing full-time employment. With only two mandatory intensive weeks held on campus, the majority of the program will be delivered via live online seminars, with real time interaction with professors and other students, and independent learning. This method allows students to fully participate in graduate level seminars, without having to take time off work for repeated weekly travel. This flexible structure also makes the Master of Science in Healthcare Quality accessible to students from all over the globe.
The Master of Science in Healthcare Quality has been specifically designed with an interdisciplinary curriculum that links theory with practical knowledge on how to conceptualize, design, implement, and measure effective change in a healthcare setting. Expert faculty, drawn from business, law, engineering, medicine, nursing, and policy, will provide a comprehensive program that will prepare students to make lasting changes in the real world. An international elective, offered at Herstmonceux Castle in the United Kingdom, will give students the opportunity to explore how quality, risk and safety are conceptualized and actualized around the world via the ability to learn from international experts in the field.
The application deadline for the 2013 admission cycle is February 1, 2013.
