Projectcase II


Admission requirements



In Project Case II the acquired Population Health Management knowledge and skills will be applied to a real-life case. This group assignment will be carried out in close collaboration with the field and will be done in parallel with the courses of first year’s second semester. The students set up a collaboration with their health care player of interest, which can be for example a care/cure organization, municipality, health insurance company. Together with the field, a real-life problem is defined. By discussing with the group, researching, doing field work, collaborating, and sharing their experience, the students apply and integrate the various ingredients of the PHM approach. The case is finalized with a presentation and written report.
