Comprehensive training in the theory and practice of health economics.

Overview

York pioneered study in 'health economics' and received the Queen's Anniversary Prize in recognition of its outstanding work at world-class level in this field in 2007. Studying for a Health Economics masters at York therefore means you'll be joining a programme with an international reputation for excellence.

The course will equip you with the experience and leading-edge skills you need for a career in research and health service decision-making. During your time at York, you'll have access to The Health Economics Resource Centre which provides a suite of rooms combining teaching materials, computing facilities and information resources.

Course Content

You'll study five compulsory core components, supplemented by a wide choice of optional units, to gain a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of health economics.

Taught by world-leading experts, you will complete modules to the value of 180 credits. This includes 100 credits of taught modules - some core and some optional - and an 80 credit dissertation.

One set from these choices:
-Econometrics 1 (10 credits) and Applied Microeconometrics (10 credits)

-Econometric Methods for Research (20 credits)

One set from these choices:

Over the three months of summer, you'll complete a piece of independent research, guided by a supervisor. The 10,000 word dissertation is worth 80 credits and offers you the chance to examine a topic in depth and to develop your academic research skills.

Most students on the MSc in Health Economics choose to do a summer placement under the supervision of an experienced health economist. These differ from the standard dissertation as the placement supervisor suggests the research topic. A list of topics is circulated in the middle of the Spring term and you are allocated to your preferred placement before the Easter vacation.

The summer placements involve many different institutions including academic research units, the NHS and pharmaceutical companies. Most students are based in UK but in recent years placements have taken students to Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Finland, France, Greece, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Vietnam and the USA.

While you shouldn't try to organise your own placement, suggestions for topics and host institutions are always welcome. These should be given to your course director.

Careers

This course is ideal for people who want to work in research and health service decision-making. Potential employers will value the experience you'll gain on your summer placement. The MSc is also an ideal basis for progression to a PhD.

This MSc in Development, Disorders and Clinical Practice combines theoretical grounding in development and its disorders, with practical experience in clinical assessment and diagnosis. This course embeds an understanding of cognitive neurodevelopmental disorders within the context of typical development, with a particular focus on dyslexia, specific language impairment, autism, ADHD, and dyscalculia. The course uniquely combines perspectives from cognitive psychology, developmental cognitive neuroscience, and applied clinical and educational practice. Topical issues in developmental disorders will be examined, including co-morbidity between disorders, and the implications of cognitive disorders for children’s mental health.

Research on developmental disorders has the potential in the long term to both inform research theoretically and to lead to substantial applications and practical implications.

This programme is therefore particularly suitable for students from Psychology or related disciplines who:
-Are seeking to build on their knowledge of developmental psychology and developmental disorders before embarking on PhD study. The acquisition of wide-ranging theoretical and practical knowledge of developmental psychology and disorders, as well as crucial research and project management skills will make students strong candidates for future positions in PhD programmes.
-Wish to boost their research skills and theoretical and practical knowledge of developmental disorders before progressing to careers in speech and language therapy, clinical psychology, educational psychology, teaching, or child health related disciplines.
-Have already qualified as clinical or educational professionals, behavioural therapists, care workers, speech and language therapists, but wish to supplement and enhance their research skills and extend their knowledge of developmental disorders.

Content

The programme combines specifically focused modules on development and disorders with courses teaching general principles of psychological research design, statistics and key transferable skills.
-Advanced Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience
-Advanced Issues in Developmental Disorders
-Assessment and Treatment of Developmental Disorders
-Current Questions in Developmental Research
-Clinical Practice for Developmental Disorders

Empirical Projects
As part of this programme, you will be given the opportunity to undertake a novel piece of empirical work, on a topic at the cutting-edge of research in development and its disorders. You will be supervised by faculty with relevant expertise in fields including language and literacy development and dyslexia, numerical cognition and dyscalculia, socio-communicative skills and autism, genetic disorders (e.g. Down Syndrome, 22q deletion syndrome), and the impact of sleep on learning and memory.

Assessment
Modules are assessed through a variety of different assignments and exams including essays, critical analysis of published papers, presentations, short notes on a range of topics, practical reports, and a dissertation and poster presentation based on the Empirical Project.
