Tirana, Albania–Health for All Project marks another success, as Faculty of Medicine at the Medical University in Albania starts accepting applications for the Professional Master in Health Management, a first for a public Albanian university. The efforts for the opening of this course started back in the early 2000s, and HAP has supported it since 2015, through activities that strengthened technical capacities of the teachers, participation of teaching staff in conferences, seminars and other scientific events, and the rehabilitation of the classes at the Public Health Department.

The deadline for the applications is 20th October and the first class of 30 students will enter the program in November, 2017. The master’s degree is intended for those individuals who already are health managers or have a strong background in health, economy and law, but need specialized health management skills for career opportunities and advancement in healthcare system.

About the program:

The program is made possible thanks to a bilateral agreement between Medical University and HAP and cooperation agreement between the Medical University and University of Tirana and, at faculty level, between the Faculty of Medicine (FM) and Faculty of Economy (FE).

The teaching plan is developed by the Department of Public Health (FM), Department of Management (FoE) with HAP offering continuing technical support through the experts of Swiss TPH. While the teaching will be provided by professors from both faculties, Swiss TPH experts are expected to offer their expertise throughout the course. As for HAP, the Swiss funded project will continue to support the program, to assure that it’s of the highest quality.
