Health Economics Teaching

The School of Population Health (SPH) offers a number of individual Master’s courses in the area of health economics, which can be undertaken by students enrolled in a degree at the School. Several of these health economic courses can also be undertaken as standalone courses by non-degree students as part of professional development.  

Specialisation in Health Economics

Students within the Masters of Public Health (MPH) and those undertaking a dual Masters with the Masters of Health Management can also graduate with a specialisation in Health Economic Evaluation as part of their MPH degree.

The specialisation provides students with knowledge and skills in the principles of the economic evaluation of healthcare programs. Health economic evaluation provides an important tool to help decision makers obtain value for money in healthcare spending choices.

The specialisation is aimed at public health students and professionals interested in learning the skills required to apply and/or understand health economic evaluations in their future careers and those wishing to begin the transition to a career in heath economics in the healthcare sector.
