A College of Health Sciences team led by UKZN Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Head of the College of Health Sciences, Professor Busisiwe Ncama, hosted a delegation from the Erasmus School of Public Health Policy and Management in Holland as part of a Memorandum of Understanding agreement recently signed by the two institutions.
During discussions, the delegations explored ways to develop initiatives in areas of management development programmes, research collaborations and student exchange programmes.
Members of the Erasmus team cited interest in teaching and research around management, healthcare systems, strategic management, financial management, process and innovation management, change management, research methodology, quality of care, governance, nursing and clinical leadership, as well as leadership development.
The visit allowed both institutions to get acquainted and discuss expectations and opportunities, to understand the curricula and the different education programmes, and to identify target groups.
