Why this programme?
The master’s programme Governance and Leadership in European Public Health will train you to become a health professional with a well-defined outlook. After you have completed the programme, you'll be able to conduct independent research and formulate effective and appropriate health policies by putting forward arguments and supporting data from a comparative, often cross-border point of view.
Unique focus on European policy domain
The search for best practices is a key and unique part of Governance and Leadership in European Public Health in Maastricht: nowhere else in Europe will you find a programme like this. The programme provides you with the background and skills to analyse public health systems throughout Europe. You’ll also learn how to prepare, support and monitor high-level decision-making processes in European institutions, in government, and in public and private organisations.
The key topics in this programme are:
- the situations, determinants, interventions and practices relevant to the health of populations, of particular groups within populations, and between European member states
- the diversity of practices and ways of organising health and healthcare delivery systems both within and between European member states
- the demand of European institutions for modern, scientifically educated professionals with the analytical tools and innovative research instruments to help them formulate and implement effective health policies at the national, international, and supranational level
- organisational development for the delivery of effective and appropriate healthcare
I want to contribute on a policy/government level to the cause of refugees and migrant health in Europe in addition to access to medicine.
