The student:

Students become familiar with the basic principles and current issues in organization and management, and the basic principles of quality in health care, with the emphasis on patient safety. By the end of the course, students will understand the functioning of an organization, the difference between management and leadership, and the work and responsibilities of a manager and an expert, all from the perspective of health care organizations. Students learn the basic management functions (planning, organization, leadership, and control), management types (strategic, operative, project), and key aspects of modern management. They become familiar with the basic skills of comprehensive quality management in health care, and how to apply them directly to the work with individuals, teams, departments, health care organizations, and the health care system.
