About

The Health Economics and Econometrics programme from University of Birmingham is ideal for new graduates hoping to pursue a career in health economics or for those currently working in the health care sector who wish to develop skills in health economics.

Overview

This Health Economics and Econometrics programme from University of Birmingham gives you the opportunity to follow a more econometrics based pathway underpinned by microeconomic theory, while taking the core modules required to study Health Economics (Economic Evaluation and Modelling for Health Care Decision Making).

The programme is targeted at those with an undergraduate economics-based degree and a desire to obtain a technical training relevant for a career in which these skills can be applied to the health care sector nationally and internationally. 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. This is an area identified as a priority for the health service and health economists with these skills are in short supply.
