The Master of Health Economics program is a joint initiative of UQ's School of Economics and School of Public Health. You'll work closely with leading academic staff from both schools.
Study can be tailored to suit your career path, with specialised electives in health financing, public economics, health systems and cost effectiveness. You'll also have the option to complete an original research thesis.
The 2-year program is ideal for graduates or healthcare professionals who don't have an economics undergraduate degree, with initial study providing a strong grounding in core economic and public health principles.
Upon graduation, you'll have developed the tools to create change and solve problems in health policy and healthcare, so you can contribute to the long-term sustainability of healthcare systems in Australia or overseas.
Postgraduate study can take you anywhere. Here are some of the careers you could be on your way to:
