|About the course||
The role of mathematical modelling in informing healthcare resource allocation decisions has been increasing over the past two decades. The MSc in Health Economics and Decision Modelling (HEDM) is the only Masters programme in the UK with a specific focus on the practical application of mathematical modelling to inform healthcare decision problems. This is a truly bespoke course, bridging the gap between the underlying theory and application of mathematical modelling for decision making and more traditional health economics. The three principal aims of the course are as follows:
This MSc is very focused on the techniques and methods of health economics and modelling, which are applicable to a vast range of settings.
Course refinement: please be aware that the Health Economics and Decision Modelling course is currently being updated to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of our students. It is envisaged that these changes will be implemented for students starting the full-time and part-time routes in September 2017. Whilst the names of the modules and their content modules may change, the overall aims and outcomes of the course will be the same. Once the nature of the changes have been confirmed, which we envisage will be in Q1 2017, we will update the website and contact all applicants and offer holders with full details of the changes.
All modules account for 15 credits unless stated otherwise.
