About

Economic thinking is becoming increasingly important in health care. The Health Economics course, Erasmus University Rotterdam begins with a two day introduction of main concepts of health economics.

The remaining three days are used to provide students with more in depth knowledge. The student will learn to analyze the cost-effectiveness of health care interventions (e.g., medicine, diagnostic test, health care programme).

Both methodology and practical examples will be covered. Exercises are used to illustrate the various steps in economic thinking.

By the end of this course participants:

  • will understand basic principles of health economics and their application at various levels (including country-level and hospital-level policymaking and single technology assessments)
  • will be able to describe the aims and steps of a cost-effectiveness analysis, as well as the role of related activities such as computer modelling, cost analysis, and quality of life assessment.
  • will be able to perform some basic level cost-effectiveness analyses through computer exercises.

Funding

Each year, the Erasmus Summer Programme provides international students and professionals with an invaluable opportunity to spend three weeks in Holland, bringing themselves right up to date in the health sciences.

In just three weeks, the Erasmus Summer Programme provides 30 courses on state-of-the-art biomedical topics. Each course is designed to fully satisfy the needs of international students with a specific interest such as clinical medicine, general practice, public health, epidemiology, genetics or biostatistics.

A key part in the Erasmus Summer Programme is played by the Fellowships: three suites of courses that provide top-level instruction in clinical research training, public health research, and genetic epidemiology. Each Fellowship is a stimulating challenge for talented young scientists who seek leading careers in scientific research.

Between them, the Erasmus Summer Programme and the Fellowships make a vital contribution to life-long learning and the professional development of students and teachers. By attracting ever greater interest each year, they reveal the enormous international demand for a springboard to an MSc or PhD in quantitative medicine or public health research.
