Established in 2005 and located in the prestigious Mohammed Bin Rashid Academic Medical Center in Dubai Healthcare City, RCSI-Dubai now offers MSc degree programmes in: Healthcare Management, Quality & Safety in Healthcare Management and Leadership in Health Professions Education. All programmes have proved to be very popular, not only in the UAE, but also in the wider region, with many healthcare professionals travelling long distances to participate in them.
Our MSc degree programmes are part-time and flexible and we use a blend of classroom and distance education designed with busy healthcare professionals in mind. Whereas most of our students complete their degrees within two years, the facility exists to cover the programme over five years. Our MSc degree programs are also the only UAE-based Level 9 programs of their kind accredited by the CAA.
A wide range of health professionals, including doctors, nurses, managers, allied healthcare professionals and healthcare insurers from many different countries take our programmes, contributing to a learning environment that is truly both inter-professional and international. The majority of our faculty, in addition to their professional business qualifications, are qualified healthcare professionals who have all worked in healthcare and understand the challenges that face you in your day to day working lives.
