 GRMS graduate: the risk manager according to the requirement of the "Haute Authorité de Santé" (The French Health Authority)


The new version of the certification V2010 introduced by the French health authority (Haute Autorité de Santé, HAS) demands that all health care establishments define a "risk management" function. Risk management questions the organisations, the practices, the individual and community behaviours. It requires a course to master the tools and methods and also to acquire a genuine safety culture. The technical, human and organisational factors must be included in an interdisciplinary approach on all the areas of the establishment.

The Post-graduate advanced master « Risk management in Health care » is based on a unique partnership which guarantees the best expertise in an alliance gathering  ICSI, INP and INSA de Toulouse , and three major actors of the education on Health care safety in France:  Université Paul Sabatier, the association de la Prévention médicale and theCCECQA.

The new partnership with the Faculty of Medicine of Angers allows students to follow the "DU "gestion des risques dans la prise en charge des patients en établissement de santé", which brings them the technical skills of the management of risks specific to health.

A Risk management centre

The partnership  INSAT - INPT - ICSI aims at establishing a major centre in the field of industrial and environmental risk management.

Its specificity consists in gathering the expertise of two engineering "Grandes Ecoles" and the resources of the "Institut pour une Culture de Sécurité Industrielle", a reference organisation in the field of safety for big industrial groups and local authorities.

This strong partnership contributes to the spreading of sustainable development values at the industrial scale. It can apply to all types of companies, including health care establishments.
