MSc Health Economics and Decision Modelling

In the current economic climate with all health care systems facing resource constraints, the importance and use of health technology assessment (HTA) and health economic modelling is rapidly increasing as governments, insurers, healthcare organisations and the pharmaceutical industry recognise the need to estimate the costs, clinical outcomes and benefits of alternative healthcare technologies.

The MSc in Health Economics and Decision Modelling (HEDM) aims to develop students to be working professionals in HTA, decision modelling and health economic evaluation, capable of working immediately in health economics and outcomes research consultancies, university-based HTA centres, pharmaceutical and medical companies, healthcare and government organisations, or progressing in an academic career to PhD and further research.
