Free registration for the online courses “How Healthcare Works” (, “Healthcare Financing Systems” (, and “Quality Management in Healthcare” ( is open until 31 May.

In conditions of uncertainty and martial law, online courses can become part of the educational process for medical students and help teachers. Last year, together with the Ukrainian Healthcare Center (UHC), we developed interesting educational courses on the health care system for teachers, scientists, researchers, students, and anyone interested in health care.

The information and materials presented are applied, and the lecturers are practitioners with many years of experience in health care. You can take courses based on the Prometheus online education platform regardless of your location; you only need the Internet.
