Director(s) message

Generosa do Nascimento

Quality health is a decisive factor for the well-being and development of contemporary societies. The UN recognizes this reality by proposing to "guarantee a healthy life and promote the well-being for all" as one of the objectives of sustainable development of the 2030 agenda.

The World Health Organization estimates that up to 40% of all health expenditures are wasted due to inefficiency, while of the 421 million annual hospitalizations occurring in the world, 10% result in some type of harm for the patient. In this context, the effective management of health services will make all the difference.

Integrated in Iscte Business School, the Master in Health Services Management is a program designed to equip students with the necessary skills to create systems capable of providing services that improve or maintain the health of individuals; deserve the confidence of the people; adapt to the technological and demographic changes that occur in society.
