As part of Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM) is at the forefront in the Netherlands with respect to education and research in the field of policy and management in the health care sector. ESHPM is responsible for Bachelor programmes in Health Sciences and Health Policy & Management and two initial Master programmes for graduates: Health Care Management and Health Economics, Policy & Law. ESHPM also provides a transfer programme for students with a different educational background and various post-academic programmes for graduate Masters.
The multidisciplinary approach to both the education and research is unique. Subject areas like economics, law, management and social sciences are combined. Many instructors are active in the field and connect the scientific theory to daily practice. Thanks to the relatively small scale of ESHPM, students and instructors quickly get to know one another.
Internationalisation is a key focus of ESHPM. The number of foreign students, instructors and researchers is growing each year. What’s more, there are plenty of opportunities for students at ESHPM to go on an exchange to a university abroad.
