DigiFlexHelse is a flexible further education programme at master’s degree level for employees in the primary and specialist health services. The goal of the postgraduate study program is to increase knowledge and competence within the ever-increasing digitalisation of the health service. DigiFlexHealth consists of four digital and asynchronous courses that are being piloted continuously (September 2022- May 2023). From autumn 2023, the courses will be available to ordinary students at the University of Bergen via the digital learning platform MittUiB.

Students who wish to take one or more of the courses must have worked in the health sector for at least two years, and it is desirable that they work with digitalisation so that they get the most benefit from their studies. The professionals and developers behind the four courses have worked closely with relevant partners to ensure that the postgraduate study programme can meet the knowledge needs that exist in the municipalities and health trusts.

The professionals in the project have focused on developing learning pathways that increase interdisciplinary collaboration between students during their education. This form of student-active learning will be useful for employees to learn from each other’s success stories and challenges.

DigiFlexHelse is funded by Kompetanse Norge and is led by the Department of Global Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Bergen.
