Participants Say

For me, as a Doctor, it was valuable to look at the world through the eyes of a Health Economist and understand how we can cooperate with each other.

Anita Kaleja
Medical Director at Pauls Stradins University Hospital, Latvia

After the Finance module, I reduced the number of tables in my reports to management from 40 to just three, and everyone was happy and they received all the information they wanted. There were very useful tips for making my work more effective!

Strategic management, customer value, motivating a team - this programme makes you take a look at the hospital from a different point of view.
