CAS: Transnational Healthcare Management

Increasingly, health care organizations have to align their activities with the provision of health care that is organized on a cross-border basis and is no longer confined to national boundaries. Healthcare professionals are just as mobile across borders as the providers of hospital, pharmaceutical and med-tech products. The same can be expected today of health and accident insurers and, ultimately, patients. In addition, in Europe, EU regulations are forcing member states as well as third countries to be aware of, and cope with, transnational system requirement.

Healthcare organizations can only keep pace with the transnationalization of healthcare if they align their activities accordingly. To do so, they need participants who are skilled in adapting to the structural conditions, financing systems, leadership requirements and care needs in other countries. This course Transnational Healthcare Management qualifies leaders in healthcare organizations for this.

The focus of the course is on the integration of knowledge and skills. Participants will supplement the theoretical foundations taught in the course by exchanging ideas with experts in the field and within the participant group, and implement knowledge gained in their own supervised projects.

In order to allow maximum direct exchange and practical applicability, the course will be delivered by universities in four participating European countries, with face-to-face and online teaching. Participants will come from a range of different countries. The course is run by the University of Bern (CH), in cooperation with the University of Bayreuth (G), the University of Edge Hill University (GB) and the School of Public Health Rennes (F).

This unique programme is sponsored by the Interfaculty Center for Healthcare Law and Management of the University of Bern, which is jointly run by the Law School, the School of Economics and Social Sciences and the Medical School of the University of Bern, as a part of its continuing education programme Management in Healthcare, which has been educating health care professionals successfully for over 30 years.
