To find solutions to today’s complex global health challenges, it is essential to understand and react to health challenges in an integrated way. With a focus on practical application and interactive training, the DAS “Healthcare and Management: From Research to Application” provides you with the core competencies for understanding and reacting to health challenges as well as the skills for working in global and interdisciplinary partnerships.

Swiss TPH is a world-leading institute in global health. Drawing from its global network and its expertise in research, service and education and training, Swiss TPH offers a unique study environment for those looking to improve international health and the well-being of populations at local, national and international levels.

The HCM course covers three main modules which can also be conducted as individual short courses:

Module A: Concepts and research methods: learning skills and research methods from social science, epidemiology and statistics

Module B: Health issues and responses: determinants of health, reproductive and child health, communicable and non-communicable diseases

Module C: Health systems, management and communication: health system management and transferrable skills needed in managerial positions

To achieve an optimal learning experience, the course employs a diverse spectrum of educational methods, such as individual and group work, lectures, seminars, tutorials and visits. The focus is on a lively exchange of experiences, ideas and mutual learning among participants and facilitators, alike. The course participants and teaching team reflect various disciplines, countries and experiences.

The course is open to participants from various backgrounds and countries. Participants are mostly trained health professionals (medical doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, etc.), though participants from other disciplines (business or social science, for example) also contribute to class diversity.
