Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


This course is dedicated to the practical application of mathematical modelling to inform healthcare decision making. It bridges the gap between the underlying theory and application of mathematical modelling for decision making and more traditional health economics.

Governments, insurers, health care organisations and the pharmaceutical industry need to analyse the costs and benefits of health-related strategies.

Currently there is an international shortage of qualified specialists in this area. This course is ideal preparation for a career as a professional health economist or modeller.

The programme is suitable for those who wish to pursue careers as applied economists in the health sector or as the basis for doctoral research.
