ESHPM expands offering of post-academic courses

Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM) has launched its own ESHPM Academy, which will offer post-academic courses. Taking post-academic courses will help you learn more about a new subject or deepen the knowledge you gained earlier of a subject related to health care policy and management.

The Academy offers various types of courses focusing on a variety of themes. For more information, refer to this page. Please find below more information on one of these new initiatives.

Current affairs seminars

One of the post-academic courses taught by ESHPM will be a series of four small-scale in-depth seminars focusing on subjects from current affairs in the health care system. At each seminar, ESHPM-affiliated experts will analyse a current policy-related subject from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Attendees may attend all four seminars or register only for individual seminars.

The seminars will be held in Dutch and will take place on Campus Woudestein (Erasmus University Rotterdam) once every three months on a Thursday afternoon (2-4.30pm). Each seminar will be followed by a drinks session where attendees can do some networking.

Given that the focus will be on topical subjects, the subjects for the later seminars have not yet been established. They will be announced at least four weeks before the date of each seminar.

First current affairs seminar

The first seminar, which will be taught on Thursday 29 September 2022, will see Prof. Marco Varkevisser and Dr Bram Wouterse provide more information on the Ministry of Health’s budget, which will be presented one week earlier on Budget Day (Prinsjesdag). Some tickets are still available for that seminar. If you’re interested, be sure to sign up soon!

Intended audience

These current affairs seminars do not presuppose any prior knowledge. They are intended for a wide range of people, such as executive staff, managers, health care providers, policy officers and consultants working in the Dutch health care system or for the government. Up to 30 people can attend each seminar.

More information on the current affairs seminars can be found here.
