The Healthcare Report should demonstrate that students are able to address a theme by applying the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills acquired from all the modules of the MSc International Health Management programme. This will also be an opportunity to demonstrate successful independent working, setting own targets and delivering a report that is professional, insightful, original, articulated, supported, convincing and valuable.
Most of the topics appear in the form of a research question, others are simply themes. Whichever topic you choose you are expected to:
Your report must have a healthcare managerial focus and should have both academic and practical relevance. To address the academic aspect you will need to appropriately refer to theoretical models and then reflect on their applicability, usefulness and limitations. The practical aspect will include your conclusions, your interpretation of the real world facts (insight) and your recommendations or proposed view of future developments (foresight).
It is vital you keep the following in mind:
secondary data to support your arguments. The report requires that you both describe and analyse the data in some way in order to draw conclusions from it. Your conclusions, or reflections, should normally address both theoretical and practical implications.
The marking scheme will take into account the following:
It is recommended that your report be ordered as follows:
Your report should be no longer than 5,000 words (with 10% discretionary allowance). The word limit applies to the main text area only, as this is where your report is introduced and
then carried forward. Your final word count should not include the abstract, references, bibliography or appendices. In-text references are included in the word count. Reports longer than 5,500 words will be penalised. The word count should be included on the title page of your report.
If the report is to contain a considerable number of tables and figures, it may be best to place them in an appendix and use in the main text only such summary tables or charts as will assist the reader in following your arguments without necessarily having to go into great detail. This may help to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted presentation.
Appendices should be included where necessary to develop a theme or analysis which is not necessary to a first reading of the report and which, if included in the main text, would tend to confuse the general line of argument, or to present data that are useful as background but not essential in detail.
It is mandatory that your report contains a full list of references. Although there are many correct ways to reference, the Harvard Referencing System is the prescribed method for Imperial College and you should refer to the Citing & Referencing Guide: Harvard Style that is produced by the Imperial College Library for comprehensive guidance on this style of referencing.
Poor referencing may result in your work being reported to the Plagiarism Committee who may classify it as Minor Infringements or even Plagiarism depending on how badly the referencing has been done.
Plagiarism is the presentation of another person’s words, ideas, judgement or data as though they were your own, for example:
Plagiarism is not acceptable in any form of written work.
When submitting your report you will be required to confirm that you have read the above definition of plagiarism, are fully aware of what it means and to certify that the report is entirely your own work, except where indicated. All reports are scanned electronically to check for plagiarism; this is a university regulation.
Plagiarism is a serious offence. The Exam Board are entitled to penalise you for plagiarism, and serious cases will result in an automatic failure of the report. The Exam Board reserves the right to take further action as it deems appropriate to protect the good name of the Business School and the College, and this may involve expulsion of a student from the course or withdrawal of a degree award.
