European countries are confronted with major health challenges that require a common approach (border crossing infectious diseases, mobility of patients, quality and safety of medical products, devices, data and patent protection, human rights, etc).

Therefore, the course will take a close look at several health (related) issues, such as public health, human rights issues in health care, free movement and patient/professional mobility.
