Graduates of health care will be mainly involved in various aspects of management and leadership of organizational units, institutions, bodies and organizations in the field of health, as well as in planning and management of human resources and organization of work processes.
This leads to a focus on the following generic skills that are necessary in different types of organizations and different areas in order for graduates to be prepared for constant and accelerated changes in the work environment.
Specific competencies of students in the program "Management in Health"
Managers or. Health managers have responsibilities and responsibilities not only to ensure that their organizations receive the strongest possible medical, operational, logistical and financial support, to meet the needs of patients, their families and local communities, but also to ensure that hospitals and other health care organizations in their local communities, they serve as support and safety networks, providing basic and ongoing care to all categories of the population, especially vulnerable categories, as well as reliable, up-to-date and accessible information on the threat to public health and public goods in times of crisis.
These are experienced and professional professionals, who sincerely care about the quality of care that patients receive ( because they come from the health care industry at the beginning of their profession ). They are not just commanders, but partners with doctors, nurses and other professional staff in the healthcare industry.
Economic issues are playing an increasing role in the management of health facilities. For this reason, the management of hospitals, pharmaceutical companies or emergency facilities requires not only qualifications in the field of medical sciences, but also professional knowledge in the field of management. This knowledge is provided by study programs that are designed according to the specific requirements of specific areas or roles and places within the core business.
Significant changes in the field of health are the result of intensive technological development and application of advanced technologies in the medical profession, changes in the age structure of the population, changes in standards of health care and protection, changes in the approach of individuals to preserve and improve their health and quality of life. innovative approaches in financing and paying for care and health care services, and designing dynamic delivery systems for health care services.
Hospitals and clinics are not only medical institutions but also social and business institutions. Therefore, they must be managed by administrators who are trained to take on management responsibilities and who understand resp. who are able to integrate various professional, economic and social factors of the work of health institutions.
The main reasons for establishing studies of this type are:
- improving health care;
- expanded opportunities for academic education of medical high school students;
- great interest of nurses and technicians to expand education and opening possibilities for further education in the context of the whole-life learning (life long learning);
- positive experiences of developed countries;
- needs for professional knowledge in the field of management in health care;
- great needs for staff of these profiles in developed countries, which opens the possibility of employment abroad.
By mastering the curriculum, students acquire not only appropriate knowledge related to the theoretical understanding of the subject, but also specific skills and abilities and competencies related to the practical and operational application of this knowledge, and skills necessary to acquire appropriate professional qualifications.
The field of health management offers unique challenges in the profession, but also appropriate rewards, both financial and psychological, ie. emotional. In this regard, health care leaders have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to improving health in the local communities in which their health facilities provide services, and thus to improve the quality of life of their fellow citizens.
The study created the foundations for lifelong professional mobility and permanent professional development.
Based on the educational profile of a bachelor's degree and a graduate specialist in health care, in the field of graduate, specialist and post-graduate studies, the University has created a large number of operational and applied subspecializations / orientations, which qualify students for professional resp. expert, administrative, managerial and consulting work in the health sector in public and private health care institutions, rehabilitation institutions and spas, sports organizations and institutions, inspection institutions, health funds and local government bodies, ie. state administration bodies.
Graduate students of health management are employed in the positions of professionals in the field of finance, logistics, marketing, planning and data processing in health care.
Graduates and graduate students-specialists in the study program "Management in Health" are trained for prestigious occupations and jobs: clerks, secretaries, administrators, managers and advisors of public and private health care institutions and funds, directors of medical institutions, heads of medical-administrative services and documentation, heads of technical and logistical and maintenance services, personnel and public relations officers.
