MOOC Population Health: Fundamentals

Health care professionals face ageing populations, rising health care costs, fragmented health care supply and advancing medical technologies and IT systems. These developments go beyond every day practice and will require new competences for not only health care professionals but also of management and leaders of related organisations.

This online course starts every six weeks on Coursera. You will be asked to attend the MOOC as preparation for the on campus course.


The partners of the LUMC- Campus The Hague offer the first summer course in PHM for health care professionals and master students that:

  • want to become change agents to support the development of a more integrated health care system.
  • have an open attitude towards a new paradigm for health care.


The Population Health Management (PHM) aims at:

  • professionals who are able to work together in enhancing the health care system and advocating health care solutions in the broadest sense.
  • realising an integrated way of thinking to approach health care subjects organizations that transform to integrated health systems.
