Some of the people behind the EMPOWER study have been developing a brand new Masters programme in Digital Health Interventions in the University of Glasgow.
This is the only UK masters course to explicitly focus on digital health interventions, allowing for a closer examination of all stages of intervention design, development and implementation. Encouraging students to adopt a critical perspective, we ensure a strong emphasis on underpinning theory, stakeholder engagement, ethics and evaluation.
Students will focus on the development and testing of high quality, safe and effective digital interventions across health conditions and needs. Graduates will be well placed to assume positions in one of the fastest growing economic sectors globally.
We are delighted that Masters students may be eligible to apply for the MSc Scholarships in Digital Health programme coordinated by the Digital Health and Care Institute. This scholarships scheme ensures that students fees for successful applicants are fully funded.
Scholarship applications are made through the University so interested students, who have reviewed and satisfy the eligibility criteria, should contact the course coordinator as soon as possible to discuss their proposal. Scholarship applications must be submitted by June 30th, 2020.
You can hear more from Dr Simon Bradstreet, who was Trial Manager on the EMPOWER study and is coordinating the course with Professor Andrew Gumley, in a recent podcast on the new Programme, developed by the Health and Social Care Alliance.
