International Course on Hospital Management


Hospital Management

۲۲ – ۲۶ August, 2016
The international course on hospital management represents a condensed one-week course of our MBA in Health Care and Hospital Management. It is based on twenty years of experience in training hospital experts in a multi-professional group. It combines special lectures on actual topics of modern hospital management with a visiting program of three big Austrian hospitals in the cities of Graz and Vienna. Case studies and round table discussions should reflect the different views of national and international perspectives.
