Health care systems are being challenged to meet unlimited patient/population needs with constrained and limited resources and health economics plays an important role in resolving these challenges. The programme provides the skills needed to conduct analyses which can inform health care decision makers about how the limited resources can be used efficiently.

This programme is suitable for people currently working in the health care sector (in both the public and private sectors, including the pharmaceutical industry) who wish to improve their understanding of and skills in health economics. It may also be of interest to new graduates who wish to pursue a career in health economics and/or health services research.

The course does not require a first degree in economics.
