  • Overview

    The aim of this course is to analyze the key factors that affect the organization of a health care delivery system oriented to provide universal coverage to the population in a public welfare system.  The challenge of social oriented healthcare systems is to comply with the need of the access to technological innovation, pursuing environmental, social and economic sustainability.

    The course will address these topics through an innovative approach, aimed at integrating different disciplinary perspectives such as, among others, economics, psychology, public health, clinical medicine, bioethics, clinical engineering, sociology and international law.

    Different teaching approaches will be used: lectures, team works, role playing, guided visits will provide the students with an embedding experience in the reality of a universal health care system.
