non-academics partners keep us connected to the ‘real’ world

non-academics partners keep us connected to the ‘real’ world

To make sure our programme links to the future working field of our students, we have various non-academic partners to provide feedback on the curriculum. Furthermore, we establish a great partner network from which our students benefit both during the programme and after graduation.

We are currently working with:

DNV-GL
Oslo University Hospital
Diakonhjemmet Hospital
Sykehuspartner
GlaxoSmithKline
Austrian Association of Social Security Funds Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Health Technology Assessment (LBI-HTA)

European Health Management Association (EHMA) MAAS
Philips
Health Care Authority
Springer Healthcare Italy Coloplast

How we keep our standards high

Next to our non-academic partners, we are subject to accreditation both on a national and European level. On a national level, we are evaluated by: NOKUT in Norway, AQ in Austria, NVAO in the Netherlands and ANVUR in Italy. On a European level, we have a certification of the European Consortium for Accreditation (ECA). Their report reflects very well that we provide an excellent benchmark for quality in internationalisation.

Furthermore, Eu-HEM has an independent committee composed of one representative per partner university and two student representatives, one from each active cohort. The overall aim of the JQEC is to monitor the quality of the Eu-HEM programme and to advise the Consortium Board on quality improvements based on assessment of collected data.

meet our consortium board

Each partner university has a voting representative in the Consortium Board, complemented with a chairperson. Together, they’re responsible for the delivery and management of the Eu-HEM programme in respect of the consortium agreement.
