Course aim

The aim of the course is that you will become familiar with the basic issues leadership and management in large healthcare organizations deal with on a daily basis. Please remember that this course has a focus on your professional socialization as a healthcare professional (e.g. physician, nurse) in the lead. We will not cover the more administrative topics as finance, accounting, planning, control but will have a more activity orientated stance towards you as a leader or manager (to be) in your own daily work.
