Short Courses by the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health
The Heidelberg Institute of Global Health offers online and face-to-face short courses in social protection, patient safety and quality improvement. The short courses program offers an exceptional opportunity for customisation of the curriculum by request in order to meet specific capacity building needs at institutional level in the area of social protection and quality improvement in health care. All of our courses are accredited and were developed in cooperation with global health experts from Evaplan, an internationally active public health consultancy. The courses are suitable for students and professionals alike.
Interested in learning applicable skills in the field of social protection? Our course offering covers everything from health insurance and pension systems to policy implementation and monitoring. By partnering with the University of Maastricht, the German Pension Fund and AOK International Consulting, we are able to disseminate the knowledge of a range of experts.

Improving quality and patient safety in health systems around the world has been central to the work of our experts at the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health and at Evaplan. We designed our online courses to share the knowledge we gathered in the field with professionals and students who want to build their capacities. The Quality improvement and patient safety online courses were developed in cooperation with the GIZ, Aqua and Isqua. Our fast track course in quality improvement is available in French in addition to English. All other courses are in English only.
