HP&M 880 Health Care and Social Policies in Sweden
Sweden leads the world in major health outcomes despite spending significantly less than the U.S. This course provides students the opportunity to visit Sweden and see the operation of its health care and social welfare system firsthand. Learn about Swedish history and culture as you re-examine many commonly held assumptions about both the U.S. and Sweden. An intensive schedule of site visits and lectures in the Stockholm-Uppsala area, assigned readings, and a major paper.
The Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA) degree prepares students for leadership roles in the health care sector, including positions in hospitals, health care systems, long-term care facilities, clinics, insurance firms, health departments, and government agencies. The MHSA offers a systematic examination of the health care system, exposure to the impact of health policy and the policy process, a mastery of analytic methods, and a broad exposure to the practice of health care management. Classes are taught on the KUMC campus and offered in the late afternoon and evening.
