The Institute of Leadership

The Institute of Leadership (IOL) is Ireland's only third-level institution dedicated to developing the leadership, management and educational capacity of health professionals. While the Institute is a fully academic institution, we maintain close connections with the world of healthcare delivery and higher education and our programmes are characterised by flexibility, speed of response, customer service and a blended learning approach that allows our students to learn while continuing to work.

The Institute has campuses in Dublin, Bahrain & Dubai and we also deliver programmes in Abu Dhabi, Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Sub-Saharan Africa. Approximately 450 health professionals are registered annually on our MSc programmes in leadership, management, education, quality, patient safety and organisational development, with an equal number taking our professional development programmes.

Programmes delivered from the Bahrain campus are:

  • MSc Healthcare Management
  • MSc Quality & Safety in Healthcare Management
