M.A. in Health Systems Management

Department Head:
Dr. Shiran Bord


Management and leadership in the health system must contend with the substantial changes that have taken place in health systems in Israel and around the world in recent years. These include increased life expectancy and its effect on the growing needs of the health system, technological developments and advanced instrumentation and their impact on the nature of treatment, the need to develop and manage databases and their access to customers, caregivers and managers in health organizations, the growing importance of patient rights in legislation and practice, and media impact on medical conduct. All of these issues are generating a new array of approaches and professional tools which should be placed at the disposal of health system managers.


The department’s faculty conducts research in various fields related to health and health systems. This includes decision-making in health, health economics, public health, health promotion, health management, and other relevant areas.
