Health Economics for Health Professionals at University of Aberdeen is run by the Health Economics Research Unit (HERU) at the University of Aberdeen. HERU has been at the cutting edge of economic research into health for around forty years and is one of the leading centres of health economics in Europe.
Students will study core courses in economic concepts; economic evaluation methods; application and policy of economic investigation; health care financing and provision; the economics of health behaviour and; applied statistics. Courses on generic health research methods, including research design; evidence‐based health and; health informatics, will provide students wishing to progress to the MSc programme with additional skills to complete their dissertation.
The Programme is aimed at health professionals who would like to improve their understanding of health economics and research methods and at other interested students who are unable to study full-time and/or want to avoid relocating.
Economic analysis is regularly drawn upon by policy makers and regulators in the health care sector, by professionals in the pharmaceutical industry and by clinicians and managers involved in the organisation, purchasing and provision of health care.
However, given the shortage of health economists in Scotland, the UK and internationally, and, therefore, health economics knowledge and skills, it is increasingly important for non-economists to have a clearer understanding of how they can effectively apply and interpret economic concepts and utilise tools in their own organisation.
