Joining the dots between innovation, policy and practice
We are producing research to improve the embedding of innovations in health care, sustainably and at scale.

We are a unique interdisciplinary venture, jointly set up in January 2019 by The Business School and the School of Health & Psychological Sciences at City, University of London.
Our team works across a range of academic fields such as health sciences, organisational studies, implementation research and social sciences. We seek to build a strong community that bridges disciplines and professions to support the embedding of innovations in healthcare.
Our research serves the needs of policy-makers who seek to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare services and the demands of practitioners and service users who aim to ensure the availability of the best possible services and treatments.
CHIR is developing new professional and executive development courses which build on the extensive experience and reputation of City in the education of professionals in various disciplines such as:
- language and communication
- business and management
- medical leadership.
CHIR is already providing novel modules in the existing programmes taught by the two schools; the recently launched Executive Master’s in Medical Leadership and the highly regarded MSc in Health Management.
