After a decade of working in the Health Management Area, initially in Primary Care and in the last three years in Hospital Care with simultaneous enrolment in some complementary training courses, I consider my participation in the Healthcare Management Program was an opportunity to systematize and consolidate concepts and knowledge learned. I consider the program to be very well structured, taught by skilled lecturers, both academically and scientifically, and providing a set of instruments and tools that are very important in everyday life. I would also like to highlight the exchange of experiences among professionals from various sectors as a valuable addition to the technical-professional and personal domains, as evidenced by the desire to continue having regular meetings, some already scheduled for next year.

I participated with great joy and interest in the first Healthcare Management Program at CATÓLICA-LISBON. The focus revealed by CATÓLICA-LISBON in the presentation of this program, in a time where important changes in the portuguese healthcare system are happening, it's the biggest sign that the dynamism of the sector is on the right path. The excellence of the teaching staff allied to the care shown in the development of a rigorous curriculum and quality allowed me a pragmatic vision, comprehensive and structured extremely useful and necessary for and efficient implementation of the health projects that I am associated with.

O HMP é um programa de excelência composto por docentes dotados e capazes de transmitir  conhecimentos relevantes e fulcrais à audiência que participa no curso. Assim, do meu ponto de vista, torna-se um programa ideal para aprofundar tanto conhecimentos gerais de gestão como circuitos funcionais adaptados a realidades hospitalares e sua relação com os meios envolventes (Cuidados de Saúde Primários e Entidades Reguladoras de Saúde). O acolhimento aos participantes é notável, quer pelos coordenadores, quer pelos docentes que lecionam as várias unidades curriculares que compõem o curso. Em resultado sinto-me mais confiante, capaz de interagir e debater ideias no âmbito da saúde.

It was with great enthusiasm that I signed up for an unprecedented initiative in Portugal promoted by CATÓLICA-LISBON: the Healthcare Management Program. It was with the same satisfaction that I made part of a dynamic, heterogeneous and very participative group that had and continues to have in common, the interest in Health issues, and in particular Health Management. These ingredients, together with the excellence of the Program and its Faculty, have made the investment in the Healthcare Management Program an excellent bet in the necessary training and education required in an industry, which is leader in growth worldwide, and where Portugal will be no exception.

The Healthcare Management Program helped me to structure the knowledge needed to coordinate a health unit and its multidisciplinary team. It is a program taught in a flexible format and with a high quality teaching staff, providing a knowledge acquisition in a format easily applicable to the management and leadership of a company. It is definitely the best management program in terms of content integration for health professionals.

The intervention of the nurse in management and administration of the health organizations has been progressively assumed and at the same time accepted by the institutions as fundamental to act at the healthcare highest level that the citizens deserve. Given the dimension and specificity of the healthcare sector it's crucial to acquire a group of management instruments that allow us to lead the processes of change that are coming. The Healthcare Management Program, taught by a teaching staff with an excellent academic background in the healthcare area, is for a moment of excellence in teaching optimization of the performance in health's management.

Falar do Programa Avançado de Gestão em Saúde é acima de tudo recordar uma experiência muito gratificante, quer do ponto de vista da valorização profissional quer numa perspetiva de enriquecimento pessoal. O PAGS permitiu-me partilhar experiências, conhecimentos e opiniões com um conjunto muito diversificado de "players" da área da saúde o que foi muito positivo. Os temas lecionados são abrangentes e o leque de professores foi uma mais-valia, quer pelos seus curriculos quer pela sua experiência.

At a time of major changes, the acquisition of Health Management skills is a necessity for professionals in this area. But it is also an ethical obligation for those who have their hands in the management of resources, particularly physicians, to ensure the sustainability of care and the creation of health value for the usual customers: the patients. The quality of the faculty and the diversity of backgrounds of the various trainees were essential to broaden perspectives. One of my best investments!

Health in Portugal, as an increasingly representative sector in terms of costs, but also in terms of access conditions to key assets. The relationship between the multidisciplinary Public Service and the Private sector, committed to ensuring innovative standards of care. The Management in the clinical environment, a challenge to cooperation and maximization of resources. These are some of the starting points of the Healthcare Management Program (HMP), a course with a wide range of specialists that stimulate learning.

A very rich and rewarding experience in all of its aspects. The teaching staff is excellent, I have assimilated and consolidated knowledge and I have acquired a more rigorous, structured and open picture of the enormous dimension that is the area of Healthcare.

Given the current challenges of change, organizational dynamics and inherent complexity of the health sector, the acquisition of skills in management is imperative. Nurses as part of the hospital organization, play a strategic role in the provision of high quality health care. Attending the Healthcare Management Program was a very rewarding and enriching experience as it allowed me learning and consolidate the knowledge, thus optimizing my performance in health management. The opportunity to share opinions and concerns for health issues within a dynamic and heterogeneous group was another important aspect of the program.

This program, with a particular emphasis on the health sector, was very comprehensive on current management topics, and with my participation in it, I reinforced a greater awareness of the increasing globalization of techniques and modern management tools.

For some years, hospital day-to-day management issues have arisen, as well as in private medicine, which I exercise, have aroused my curiosity and often my perplexity. Nowadays, due to a large number of changes that our health system has undergone, these issues have been reinforced in a more significant and weighted way, without necessarily translate toward a positive final balance.
Currently, the providers of healthcare of excellence are not only the ones in which we provide the best health care, the most sophisticated equipment and the best and most motivated professionals but, they are also linked, without a doubt, with a lower cost and as little waste as possible.  The goal intended will only be achieved if all the professionals involved speak the same language, work for the same purpose and are in perfect harmony. It will only be achieved a great outcome if all professionals are committed, which hence the need for physicians to also participate in the management and decision-making processes in the institutions to which they belong.​ If this does not happen, even the best decision faces failure. These were the reasons that led me to attend the Advanced Health Management Program, which I strongly recommend to all physicians.​​

The Healthcare Management Program (HMP) was the best step to be able to "get behind the scenes" of the other side of health in Portugal, and to learn to develop strategies and the modus operandi in areas that are increasingly requested from me, such as management, leadership, negotiation and others.

The whole structure of the program, together with an opportunity for learning and sharing experiences between lecturers and participants, focusing on a reality based practice, makes all the difference!

If there are paradigms of complexity, we find at least one of them in an organization of health services. And today is asked to health managers to turn this complexity in performance! It is with particular gratification that I recognize that the Healthcare Management Program fulfills its main objective, to provide participants with the skills development of Health Services Management, public or private. It allows us to clearly identify the asset management of our professional project, and helps us to develop a prospective vision, strategic and long-term of organizations. We acquired skills and abilities to understand the factors involved in resource management, processes and behaviors of healthcare organizations.
