How can we increase effectiveness and efficiency? What is the monetary impact of smoking on the healthcare system? What value should we place on this drug or procedure? In an era of diminished budgets and ageing populations, health economists are in more demand than ever.
Study Health Economics at UEA and you’ll learn to make decisions that really count. You will be based in the Norwich Medical School, where you’ll not only develop an understanding of economic concepts related to health, public health, and health services policy, you’ll be part of a school at the forefront of research. You’ll train with a wide range of healthcare students, taught by leading academics, and you’ll be connected to a well-respected group of researchers who advise on international and national policies that affect people’s health, worldwide.
You’ll graduate ready to tackle some of the biggest questions in the provision of care for national government, the NHS, the private sector or research organisation.
