PgCert Health Economics


Course Description

The programme aims to give you an insight into important issues in health economics helping you face the daily challenges of resource allocation. This will include: an understanding of basic economic concepts; an awareness of the range of approaches available for economic investigation and when to use them; an understanding of how to conduct an economic evaluation either alongside a trial or as part of a decision analysis; an understanding of the arguments for and against different types of health care financing and an understanding of how different models of health care provision work.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Health Economics is a distance learning course broken down into four modules: Introduction to Economics and Health Economics, Economics Evaluation – Principles and Frameworks, Economic Evaluation – Applications and Policy and Health Care Systems and Policy. Each module will result in 3 credits or 15 SCOT/CAT points. All students will have access to our WebCT site, which provides a virtual learning environment where students can take advantage of the discussion board and access course material.

Assessment is continuous; there is no formal examination. There are four written assignments in total, one for each module. The award of the certificate is dependent on satisfactory completion of the assignments and, for students in Great Britain, attendance at seminars. Module One is a one day seminar and Modules two, three and four are two day seminars that involve an overnight stay. Each seminar is held in Edinburgh.
