Comparison of health management programs in turkey and greece

Introduction: Health systems worldwide become more complex and costly, placing additional demand on health services managers. Therefore redesign of health services management education is on the agenda around the world. Aim: The aim of this study was to compare curriculum of the undergraduate and graduate programs on health management in Turkey and Greece. Method: Programs at Ankara University in Turkey, at Technological Educational Institute of Athens, and at Technological Educational Institute of Piraeus in Greece are taking into account as a sample for the comparison of curriculum. A theoretical framework developed by the Association of University Programs on Health Administration to evaluate the educational programs on health management has been used for comparison. The comparison is based on the evaluation of the weight of three basic areas: management theories, health sector, and getting skills by training, project, seminar, homework, and written examination. The study also assesses the different practices about the educational systems like number of terms in one year period, language used for the education, and educational techniques. Employment opportunities are also discussed. Results: The study provides that undergraduate and graduate programs at Ankara University have more similarities in general than the differences with the undergraduate program at Technological Educational Institute of Athens and graduate program at the Technological Educational Institute of Piraeus in terms of the curriculum, the duration of the education and the language of the education. Discussion: More studies are needed for the comparison of the programs with other programs both in Europe and around the world.
