University of East Anglia UEA
This programme aims to give graduate economists and health professionals an understanding of how economic ideas and principles may be applied to health, public health, and health care. Students develop an understanding of how to apply economic theory and appraise economic evidence to inform health policy and health care decision making through the use of a mixture of lectures, computer practicals, workshops, individual study and assessed work. Module choice is flexible to reflect student�s prior learning with an opportunity to study relevant modules provided by the Schools of Economics and International Development. The importance of broader research skills is recognised and students develop the skills necessary to progress to PhD research should they wish to.
