The master’s degree programme in Health Professions of Technical Sciences (Diagnostic) is designed to provide graduates with the necessary training to:

  • assimilate the fundamental preclinical and clinical principles required to train healthcare personnel engaged in instrumental and non-instrumental diagnostic procedures;
  • make use, within healthcare facilities, of the basic principles of biomedical science in relation to their specific professional role in order to make decisions concerning the organisation and   management of services provided by expert healthcare professionals in the medical field;
  • possess a comprehensive understanding of the operational methods adopted by healthcare staff, including social and moral ethics;
  • oversee the design and creation of scientific data processing systems, as well as their management and use in various contexts;
  • employ the necessary health economics and business organisation competences to organise healthcare services and manage human and technological resources, also taking into account the cost/benefit ratio;
  • carefully evaluate specific sectors of the healthcare profession;
  • make use of research methodologies and tools for the organisation of healthcare services;
  • plan and improve upon all processes directed at increasing resources (human, technological, educational, and financial) available within healthcare facilities;
  • plan and implement refresher and continuing training courses in connection with the relevant healthcare facilities;
  • improve upon teaching competences within their specific professional role through tutorials and the coordination of internships directed at providing basic, further and continuing training;
  • provide training in relation to legal matters in compliance with the regulative, administrative and jurisdictional control of the European Union authorities, so as to facilitate integration with foreign states and the related provisions.

Graduates in Health Professions of Technical Sciences (Diagnostic) possess the scientific knowledge, ethical values and professional skills required to enter professional roles in the field of diagnostics, having also carried out extensive study in the discipline and specific research. Upon completion of the course, they possess the advanced preventive, diagnostic and educational competences required to meet the primary health problems of children, adults and the elderly and to ensure the provision of high-quality services.

On the strength of their training, graduates are equipped, in the context of staff planning and management in the healthcare sphere, to deal with the requirements of the community, the development of new work organisation methods and innovations in technology and computing, forms of remote care and distance learning, the planning and organisation of training initiatives, and the homogenisation of operating standards with those prescribed by the European Union. Thanks also to the acquisition of sufficient professional experience, graduates develop an integrated approach to organisational and managerial issues in the healthcare professions. This is underpinned by an excellent command of the techniques and procedures of healthcare management, both within and outside of their own sphere of competence. Thanks to their methodological training, they are also qualified to assist with training and research processes relating specifically to the above-mentioned fields.

Graduates can find employment opportunities in working areas like these:

  • health management in health facilities;
  • university teaching;
  • research at public or private institutions.
