Health Economics PGDip




Courses Overview

What will I learn?
If you are a graduate economist or from another relevant disciplinary background (such as health professionals or other quantitative social scientists) and wish to gain a good knowledge and understanding of how economic ideas and principles are relevant to, and applied in, health and healthcare, combined with practical experience of applying health economics techniques. You will gain an appreciation of the links between economic evaluation and economic theory, health services research and decision making. You will also develop practical skills in economic analysis of health problems. You will develop your analytical skills in quantitative research methods as well as your skills of critical appraisal and your ability to apply research results to practice and to health services decision making. The programme is taught from within a research active health economics group. This means you will benefit from access to up-to-date and real-world health economics research experience and have the opportunity to work on active research on your dissertation topic. This programme provides the analytical tools and practical skills on which to start building a career in health economics. After graduation, you will be a sought-after professional ready to pursue a rewarding career as a health economist in organisations such as central government, NHS Trusts, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), or with the World Health Organisation (WHO). You could also become an analysist in pharmaceutical firms, for example, or you may choose to build upon your postgraduate research and pursue a career in research or academia.
