With its blend of applied health economic modules and specialist economic modules the MSc in Health Economics and Econometrics is ideal for individuals wishing to embark on a career as a health economist in industry, the health service or academia.
Employability from the allied and established MSc in Health Economics and Health Policy has been consistently high. This new programme has been specifically designed to complement the current demand by building on specific skills that are known to be in short supply.
This programme will supplement the standard health economic toolkit of economic evaluation and modelling but additionally help those who with particular technical interest to develop techniques to analyse aspects of the Health Service and the big data sets that are both being developed and those which are currently available in health service systems and databases.
