The Master's Degree in Health Administration (MUAS) is an official Master's Degree, of 60 credits (ECTS), which is taught jointly by the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) and the Escuela Nacional de Sanidad (ENS), the latter belonging to the Instituto de Salud Carlos III (ISCIII). Since 2010, the UNED and the ENS have formed the Joint Research Institute under the name IMI-ENS.
The different subjects of the Master will be taken over two years (see the Syllabus section), making training compatible with professional activity; this process helps to rework and enrich the student's experience, and on this basis to build and consolidate managerial and management skills.
The Master's Degree is developed by combining face-to-face and virtual activities. The face-to-face activities allow a more direct interaction between the participants of the Master: students, teachers, speakers and academic organization. This activity is organized in Face-to-Face Sessions that will be held at the end of each subject. They have a duration of two days, including exams along with various teaching and academic activities. Virtual activities are the most important throughout the Master, with a varied range of methods and tools to work and interact from the virtual course hosted on the educational platform of the UNED.
