University of Galway is pleased to announce the new McGinty MBA Scholarship, established by University of Galway alumna, Dr Geraldine McGinty, to empower female physicians on a career path to healthcare leadership.
Physician-led healthcare management is proven to have better outcomes for patient care. By empowering medics to pursue an MBA programme this scholarship will equip them with a skillset to elevate their strategic vision and enhance their management capabilities.
This scholarship will see a new cohort of women who will lead improved and impactful outcomes for patients and staff in the healthcare system.
The scholarship will be awarded annually to a female medical practitioner with 3 years postgraduate work experience in medicine. The successful applicant must demonstrate a clear career pathway towards leadership in the healthcare sector.
This year we are delighted to award two scholarships; one to a graduate in Medicine, and another to a graduate in nursing, midwifery or health sciences where the applicant shows a clear career trajectory towards a leadership role in healthcare.
The Scholarship Value is €9,000 per student over their two year MBA programme.
