Continuing medical education "Management"
The 4-month certificate continuing medical education course "Management" (Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS)) provides you with knowledge you need for entering the management level. In the first course, you will learn or rehearse "Business Basics", i.e. you will receive an introduction to management, strategic planning, accounting, finance and investment as well as organizational theory and practice and, of course human resources. You will then explore different health care systems, reimbursement and the management of different entities that play a role in oncology. The online learning phase concludes with a course on quality management, again from different perspectives and with insight how to change existing practices.
During the final seminar you will sit your module examination and engage with other participants and students of the Advanced Oncology study program. You will be joining a workshop on drug approval, one on workflow optimization and receive training in negotiation. You will also meet the younger Advanced Oncology class and network with them and the elder class, e.g. during the thesis presentations of the elder class. You will also participate in the very interactive workshop on future perspectives in oncology with alumni of the study program. Furthermore, you may explore personal coaching if desired.
