Institute of Health Policy & Management, Erasmus University Rotterdam

Logo Erasmus University Rotterdam, Institute of Health Policy & Management

The Department of Health Policy and Management (instituut Beleid en Management Gezondheidszorg iBMG) was founded in 1982 within the Erasmus Medical School, and is now part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FGG). Within the FGG, our department enjoys a relatively independent status, but numerous links and collaborations with other departments of the Faculty and with the University Hospital exist.

At iBMG, research and educational activities are closely intertwined. Knowledge of various scientific disciplines such as economics, law, social-medical sciences, organisational science and public administration is brought together and applied to the health care sector. This multidisciplinary approach to education and research is unique. Our scientists do not only cooperate closely together, they also aim to establish valuable partnerships with third parties in the social sphere. This guarantees the social relevance and applicability of iBMGs research.

Internationalisation is highly valued at iBMG. The number of students, teachers and researchers from abroad has risen significantly over the past years and it certainly seems as if this trend will carry on.

The Institute of Health Policy and Management was a partner institution of the International Network Health Policy & Reform from 2002 until 2006.
