Rapid changes in healthcare systems require new professionals with a deep understanding of health and healthcare issues and a wide spectrum of skills to promote and manage changes at the organizational and policy level. MIHMEP intends to train a new cadre of professionals by providing an interdisciplinary and international program specifically focused on healthcare management and policy. Through an itinerary comprising 9 months of classroom activities and a 3-month field project, participants will develop theoretical and practical skills in management, economic analysis, policy analysis and formulation, and epidemiology. The program is designed to ensure that participants:

• fully comprehend and learn to lead the important new developments occurring in health-related industries (pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device companies);
• achieve substantial skills and competencies in the management of healthcare organizations;
• gain experience in applying qualitative and quantitative methods to promote and manage change at the organizational and policy level;
• understand the epidemiological factors and the political, economic and social context of healthcare management from an international perspective;
• understand the political process and strategy which drive the international health arena

The challenging learning experience is enriched with intensive cultural exchange between participants coming from variety of backgrounds and from different parts of the world.

MIHMEP requires total dedication and maximum intellectual commitment. Class attendance is mandatory thus MIHMEP is incompatible with any additional professional activity.

Teaching involves a mixture of lectures and practical sessions together with group projects and seminars with an emphasis on discussion and problem solving. These diverse methods give you opportunities for active and critical participation, and strengthen teamwork and interpersonal skills.
