Health Care and Management (DAS HCM): From Research to Implementation

(Core course MAS IH)

The Diploma of Advanced Studies in “Health Care and Management: From Research to Implementation” (DAS HCM) course provides international participants with the core competencies for understanding and reacting to health challenges at a world-leading institute in global and public health. Participants acquire a range of skills and knowledge needed to work as a public health professional in resource-constrained settings. With a focus on practical application and interactive training, multinational participants benefit from engaging with experts from various fields and with a diverse student body to advance their position in the health sector.

The DAS HCM can either be conducted full-time over 14 weeks or in a modular way over 2-3 years by doing a Certificate of Advanced Studies in “Health Research and Interventions” (CAS HRI) and a Certificate of Advanced Studies in “Health Systems and Management” (CAS HSM) and the final oral exam of the DAS HCM. The DAS HCM also serves as the core course for those who wish to pursue a Master of Advanced Studies International Health (MAS IH).

“In the Swiss TPH Health Care and Management postgraduate course, I learned how factors such as the social background of a patient or environmental influences affect health. In addition, I appreciated the help that was offered in developing my own professional career.”
