Program Overview

Digital Health is one of the fastest growing economic sectors worldwide. It's creating jobs twice as fast as any other economic sector in Scotland and globally (Financial Times 2018).

Digital Health arises from the intersection of health and care services, information technology and mobile technology, and encompasses digital products and systems that can monitor, analyse, educate and improve health and care (Deloitte 2015). 

This one-year Master’s degree (also available part-time over 24 months) is the perfect conversion pathway for recent graduates looking to move into the health and care sector. It's also ideal for existing health and social care practitioners looking to up-skill in digital innovation.

Our course is unique in that it's:

  • Delivered by a broad range of world experts in computing science, information science, clinical psychology, and health services research
  • Relevant to real world practice by being co-designed with the Scottish Government, their innovation centre (the Digital Health & Care Institute) the National Health Service, and health and care SMEs and third sector organisations
  • Takes a multifaceted whole systems approach involving people, technology, practice and policy

You'll learn about state-of-the-art devices (eg sensors, wearables, apps), systems (eg electronic health records, remote monitoring) and methods (eg co-design, machine learning and data analytics).

You'll also learn about health and care implementation and innovation and how to deliver real world digital health solutions in context and at scale.
