Course summary

Having specialist knowledge in Health Economics is an increasingly important asset and extra responsibility of medical personnel. Run with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc, the online Postgraduate Diploma Applied Health Economics will enable health care professionals to be well equipped to elicit the maximum value from finite budgets.

It will help students understand why Health Economics has and should become integral to healthcare decision making as well as understanding the underlying principles, methodologies and processes associated with this established and growing international discipline. Unlike other courses, the Postgraduate Diploma Applied Health Economics covers the key disease area pertinent to Health Economics for healthcare decision making.

On completion of the Health Economics Diploma, you will be able to demonstrate a systematic understanding of the application of Health Economics in healthcare decision making; critically evaluate current research in Health Economics for healthcare decision making; apply a critical awareness of current issues in Health Economic evaluations and implement Health Economic evaluations in clinical practice scenarios.

Assessment

The applied health economics course puts assessments at the heart of learning by using real-life scenarios to facilitate problem-solving, critical analysis and evidence-based care. The scenarios act as both the focus for learning and assessment, embedding assessment within the learning process.

Careers

The PG Diploma in Health Economics is being introduced with the express purpose of promoting and enhancing professional skills and knowledge among its students which have direct relevance and application to the demands of their working roles. There is increasing competition for employment in the healthcare arena, with increasing specialisation. There is a need for postgraduate qualifications to assist with career enhancement and support specialisation.
