Course summary

Health economics applies economic thinking to the analysis of health and health care.

Get to know the core issues in health economics and their relevance to working health professionals. Study the tools you need to analyse and address the limited resources faced by the health sector. Learn to face the challenges of resource allocation as you build your health research skills.

Study with a team of practising health economists who are actively involved in policy-shaping research at our Health Economics Research Unit (HERU). It’s one of the leading centres of health economics in Europe. HERU is a Queen’s Anniversary Prize winner for its sustained excellence in health economics research over the last 40 years.

This degree is ideal for health professionals looking to improve their understanding of health economics and research methods. Part-time and 100% online, you can manage flexible study hours to suit you.

Economic analysis is regularly drawn upon by policymakers 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. Students can progress into the MSc after successful completion of the PgCert and PgDip.
