Europeans enjoy some of the highest quality and most affordable health care in the world. However, European health systems are under pressure due to an ageing population, innovations and a demand for more citizen-centred services. During this programme, students gain a greater understanding of public health policies and medical achievements and practise in Europe. They examine the different attitudes to health in various European countries and compare their health care systems with the market driven system of the United States. Students can also deepen their knowledge of genetics, immunology or biology, gain insight into contemporary European health issues, discuss medical case studies and develop practical medical skills.
