MSc Economics (Economics of Health)

Course Description

Health is major economic issue. It is a primary determinant of labour market participation and the generation of wealth. Consequently its social and geographical distribution is a major policy concern in most countries. In this respect economics has proved to be a very powerful tool to inform policy making in the health sector.
This course aims to provide a rigorous training in modern theories and techniques in economics of health and health care at the postgraduate level.
It provides training for those aiming to be health economists in national and international public (NHS, WHO, etc) and private institutions including consultancies. The course also serves as a sound foundation from which to embark on a PhD Programme in Health Economics.
Students are introduced to key concepts, tools and techniques via core and optional course units, and have the opportunity to combine and develop their skills in writing a supervised dissertation.
Cutting-edge health related issues and policies will be critically examined and by the end of the course, students should be able to rigorously engage with the current theory and practice in health economics. In the end students should be able to develop theoretical or empirical models of their own from which to derive original results and offer a critique of existing theories and practice.
The bulk of the teaching and research supervision for students on this Programme is done by members of the Economics DA (School of Social Sciences) and Health Economics research group (School of Community Based Medicine).
If you would like to speak informally about the Programme then please contact the Pathway Directors, Dr Eleonora Fichera () or Dr William Whittaker ().
