This involves developing the skills expected to practice the profession of healthcare executive in a complex and constantly evolving environment.

    Since September 2023, the IFCS has been offering a new two-year work-study training offer concurrently with the Master MOeS from the IAE in Caen (presentation brochure to download below) .

    The training spread over 2 years, in an integrative work-study process, will allow you to alternate between the institute and your employer .

    A new training offer that will:

    • Strengthen alternating learning in an evolving and progressive way.
    • Promote support for health executives in their professionalization process.
    • Contextualize the different learning in the field throughout the training in an incremental and adaptive way.
    • Spread the health executive/Master training over 2 years alternately in order to balance and smooth learning over time and thus optimize the appropriation of methods, approaches, tools and concepts.
    • Separate preparation for the entrance exam from the training system.
    • Develop IFCS continuing education (adaptation to new challenges in the health system and developments in the profession).
