As a result of continuing growth in the recruitment of students to the MSc Global Healthcare Management courses, the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health at Coventry University is looking to appoint a fourth External Examiner to support its suite of undergraduate and postgraduate courses focussing on Leadership and Management in Health for a four-year term of office. Coventry University offers extensive support for external examiners and holds briefing workshops annually. Further support is also provided by the Course Directors and Course Administrators. The University normally expects External Examiners to attend a minimum of one examination board per year and to complete an annual External Examiner Monitoring Report.

There are a range of programmes, as follows:

The MSc programmes are solely located within the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health, whereas delivery of the MBA programme is a collaboration between this School and the Coventry Business School. The programmes are either undertaken full-time or part time, campus-based or online. The UG Continuous Professional Development Open Framework is currently being used to deliver accredited leadership courses, to employees of the West Midlands Ambulance Service leading to the award of three levels of UG certificates in Professional Development.
