BREI launches new MSc programme in Healthcare Facilities
29 October 2018
The Bartlett Real Estate Institute (BREI) have launched a unique new Master’s programme, the first of its kind in the UK.
The MSc in Healthcare Facilities provides an integrated and interdisciplinary programme related to healthcare facilities in the widest sense, giving the opportunity to transform the wider healthcare community’s view of the role, design and operation of built forms that support health activities.
The MSc is designed for healthcare and built environment professionals to learn about the challenges facing healthcare real estate provision and operation in the 21st century.
The programme will cover all aspects of the process of creating, renewing or managing healthcare facilities, and provides an integrated and interdisciplinary programme related to healthcare facilities in the widest sense.
The programme is led by Dr Evangelia Chrysikou, who is a Lecturer at BREI as well as a registered architect (ARB) and medical planner. She is among the few architects globally holding a PhD in healthcare architecture.
Dr Daniel Davis – Consultant in Geriatric and General (Internal) Medicine, Department of Medicine for the Elderly, University College Hospital (UK), said:
I would like to express my support and enthusiasm for the MSc in Healthcare Facilities. A clear understanding of patient experiences in relation to the built environment, in particular with respect to healthcare facilities, is a critical challenge. This programme will consolidate UCL’s international expertise in this area, with the ultimate goal of contributing to the future optimisation of patient clinical and care pathways.“
