Thriving in a complex healthcare system

You have just earned your degree as a medical healthcare professional or are still training to be one. The Dutch healthcare system is complex. Healthcare shortages, the necessity to innovate, and the need for new leadership styles — these are challenges today's healthcare professionals are facing. Challenges that are hardly being addressed in the basic medical curriculum. The Clinical Business Administration program is aimed at healthcare professionals who want to develop themselves in this area. Are you a professional who wants to focus on clinical patient care, but also be involved in how healthcare is organized? This program will give you the tools and skills you need to understand both sides of healthcare and to unite them in your work practice.

The Clinical Business Administration program is organized by TIAS in collaboration with the interest group De Jonge Specialist.

Learn all about management challenges in healthcare through the Advanced Program Clinical Business Administration

The healthcare sector is under pressure. While the ingredients that make for a good healthcare system are present and we have the resources to provide quality care, the complexity of our healthcare system and the barriers between care units are making it difficult for us to do so. Healthcare problems cannot be solved in isolation. As healthcare professionals, we need to collaborate with other healthcare providers, policymakers, industry, and patients. However, we often have different perspectives and speak a different ‘language’. In addition to management skills, the Clinical Business Administration program provides healthcare professionals with an understanding of those different perspectives. Thanks to these insights you, as a healthcare professional, will be better prepared to navigate the complex field of healthcare and be able to thrive within it. This is not only valuable for your own development, but will also allow you to bring value to healthcare organizations.

  • Learn to speak both the language of patient care and the language of managers.
