DAS Health Care and Management (HCM): From Research to Implementation

HCM 2021

Date: 08.03. - 11.06.2021
Time: 08:45 h - 17:00 h

The 14-week Health Care and Management (HCM) diploma course provides multinational participants with the core competencies to understand and react to health challenges at a world-leading institute in global health. Participants acquire a range of skills and knowledge needed to work as a member of a health management team, particularly in low- and middle-income societies. With a focus on practical application and interactive training, participants benefit from engaging with experts from various fields and with a diverse student body to advance their position in the health sector.

The course is open to participants from various backgrounds and countries. Participants are mostly trained health professionals (medical doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, veterinarians), though participants from other disciplines (business or social science, for example) also contribute to class diversity. Participants with a first professional qualification (e.g. Bachelor degree) have at least 2 years of professional experience and demonstrate sufficient English language skills (TOEFL Paper 550/ TOEFL Computer 213/ TOEFL internet 79 – 80/ IELTS 6.0 or native speaker or completed higher education in English).

A limited number of scholarships offered to participants from countries with resource constraints allow an exciting intercultural teaching and learning setting.

Participants learn both from the teaching of a wide range of experts, and also from each others' experience.

The course is accredited by tropEd and the University of Basel as a post-graduate academic course which leads to the degree Diploma of Advanced Studies.
