The 1st semester is aimed at acquiring fundamentals of economics, management, law, policy sciences and research methods relevant to the healthcare sector. All fundamental courses need to be passed (or exemption received) in order to start 2nd semester courses. 

2nd and 3rd semesters are devoted to the development of advanced and specialised skills on current issues in the healthcare sector. You choose your specialisation during the 1st semester. This is done in the end of October. You are invited to an information session, in which all the specialisations are presented, prior to your decision.

You can gain specialisation by an internship in prominent organisations and by the possibility of spending up to two semesters in a partner university.
