Are you interested in a career in health care management? The healthcare industry is highly complex and always in need of qualified professionals with excellent management skills. It is an area which is always changing and the emergence of new medical technologies and legislation requires flexibility on the part of those in the field. Healthcare professionals must be adept at making informed decisions. Decision making, ie, management, aimed at achieving safe, good quality care, requires skilled professionals. The Master's Degree in Healthcare Management from the UIC provides students with useful, practical and professional education and training, for both general practitioners and nurses, as well as for those graduates in the field of health sciences or other academic disciplines which are interconnected with them (Economics, Business Studies, Law, Engineering, etc.). This will allow them to be guided professionally at other levels of healthcare management, both public and private.
