Navigating the health workforce crisis: health care innovations and transformation

Policy makers are deeply concerned about the state of the health workforce, as they strive to bolster the capacity and enhance the effectiveness of their healthcare systems. They find themselves grappling with shortages and areas devoid of medical services, significantly affecting the accessibility and quality of healthcare. Simply aiming to maintain numerical levels of healthcare professionals is deemed insufficient and perhaps unfeasible. Consequently, nations are exploring novel care models and leveraging medical and technological advancements to revolutionize their healthcare systems, enabling them to better address the demographic, social, and environmental challenges across Europe.

The Summer School, organized by the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, the Veneto Region of Italy, the European Commission, and the World Health Organization (WHO), and endorsed by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, welcomes applications from all 53 WHO European Region Member States. The program will be customized to align with participants’ backgrounds to the extent possible. Additionally, consideration will be given to applicants from outside the region if space permits.

The summer school is from 21 July – 27 July 2024 in San Servolo, Venice, Italy. For more information, visit here.
