Health Economics and Management

This course is designed for professionals and academics from a wide range of backgrounds (including health care, computer science, and business and management). Whether students see their future in local health care services or global institutions, this course provides the springboard students need. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to think creatively, critically and innovatively as they evaluate the relationship between evidence-based medicine and economics. Students enhance their understanding of the economics of health care, particularly with regard to health service research (HSR) and health technology assessment (HTA). The programme explores how decisions and policies which impact on UK or global health care economics are made, and students learn strategies for making their own decisions and policies. students examine the economic, clinical, social, and moral factors which influence the management and leadership of health care and related disciplines.
