EYDI21SY Master's Degree Programme in Digital Health

Development of Expertise

Savonia curricula are composed of courses. They are not unconnected: rather they support the overall progress of the student and his/her development of expertise. At the same time it makes possible the connecting of teaching and research- development- and innovation work originating from work life. Today’s workers move from one job to another within the organisations and between organisations. This emphasises the many-sided competences and capabilities. Also the workers must react to changing environments e.g. the work of digitalised health expertise takes place from tertiary care to primary care, specialised care, private health care, enterprises, and in homes or assisted living places. The theory and the practical assignments are combined with the studies.

Curriculum of degree programme in digital health has been drawn up, so that
- the degree produces the degree of competence required in work life
- the education ensures the development of the student’s expertise
- the education enhances lifelong learning
The student
- draws up to support his/her studies an individual study plan in which earlier acquired competence is identified
- is responsible for the progression of his/her studies.

Savonia’s teachers and other personnel facilitate and support in the defining and achieving of individual goals. The student starts the planning of the thesis in during the first semester. The students begin already at the early stages of their studies the planning of their thesis. The thesis is supported with virtual courses in the methods of developing work life.
