Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM), part of Erasmus University Rotterdam, engages in education and research with a multidisciplinary focus on policy and management topics in healthcare. By combining education, scientific excellence, policy and practical relevance, ESHPM provides insight into how healthcare and healthcare systems work and how they can be improved.
Scientific excellence with a strong societal orientation and impact
ESHPM’s research has a strong societal orientation and is deeply embedded in international research networks. Knowledge and experiences of various scientific disciplines such as economics, law, sociomedical sciences, organizational science and public administration are brought together and applied to the healthcare sector. Our renowned scientists publish new research on a daily basis. Their results touch and inspire people. Their research provides new insights that change the face of healthcare in the Netherlands and beyond.
The research group Health Services Management & Organization is responsible for education and research on management and innovation in healthcare. Our aim is to improve the management and organisation of health services in order to provide the best value for patients/clients and professionals in healthcare.
Research of HSMO covers the full width of the healthcare sector, from hospital care to elderly care, care for people with disabilities, mental health care, youth care and primary care. To a large extent, our research is carried out on the organization of the primary process of care delivery, both within and across organizations. For example, the research group has been closely involved in the evaluation of several integrated care initiatives in chains or networks.
Young ESHPM (yESHPM) is the PhD community of ESHPM. Our goal is to create a space for PhD candidates from different sections to meet and interact. Through organizing regular activities, yESHPM functions as a platform for sharing experiences, difficulties, and questions related to being a PhD candidate at ESHPM. We discuss general affairs concerning PhD projects and the PhD trajectory with the management team of ESHPM. The board of yESHPM consists of representatives from the different sections at ESHPM.
ESHPM is part of EGSH. Once you have started your PhD you automatically become a member of our graduate school. Doing a PhD is not just about doing research. At the Graduate School you will also follow courses and workshops to enhance your research and networking skills. Our experience has shown that a good start is crucial to the successful completion of any PhD project. Therefore, the Graduate School has several services to accommodate to the needs of starting PhD candidates, for example a soft landing programme.
You will also become a member of the Rotterdam Global Health Initiative (RGHI). This is the multi-disciplinary global health research and education network of Erasmus University and Erasmus MC. Through our research and education efforts, we seek to help diminish health inequalities between and within countries, improve people’s living conditions, and contribute to more effective and equitable healthcare of good quality worldwide. By working with partners worldwide and locally, we strengthen evidence-based policy making and practice while broadening the evidence base by learning from practitioners and policy makers.
