Get a comprehensive view by exploring the economic, political and legal approaches to the complexities of healthcare systems.


Healthcare systems worldwide face complicated challenges. Policy makers want to retain or improve access to good-quality healthcare, but they also want to keep systems affordable for patients and tax payers. Meanwhile, healthcare expenditure is increasing, demographics are changing, expectations are higher and expensive new treatments are becoming available.

What are the causes of the problems systems face? What are the solutions? Take a multidisciplinary approach that combines legal, economic, managerial, and political thinking. See how countries balance efficiency and equity in their systems. Explore the impact that the European Union and other international bodies are having on healthcare systems. The master programme is internationally oriented and aims to attract students from all over the world.
