The Online Health Technology Assessment programme from University of Glasgow , which is only one of a few such programmes in the world, is delivered by the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences, home to world leading expertise across an impressive diversity of disciplines. 

Delivered by the Health Economics and Health Technology Assessment (HEHTA) research team, the programme offers multidisciplinary insights in data science, health economics, analytical decision modelling and patient-reported outcome measures, as it’s happening, right now. 

Lecturer Professor Andrew Briggs currently co-chairs a task force responsible for creating articles into new modelling methods for medical decision-making and technology assessment.

The HEHTA team also drives key decisions and assessments for international health agencies such as NICE, SMC and HITAP, ensuring that our online programme content is up-to-date and relevant in the real world. Research is currently underway to deliver safer and more cost-effective treatments in Scotland through the use of precision healthcare technology.
