Many economic tools have been developed and are currently being applied to support decisions concerning animal health. These include basic methods such as partial budgeting, cost-benefit analysis and decision analysis, but also more advanced methodologies such as linear programming, the Markov chain and Monte Carlo simulation. By taking the Applied Economic Modeling for the Veterinary Sciences course from Utrecht University you will learn about all of these, together with how to detail the critical steps in a systems analysis and choose appropriate modeling types and techniques.
By gaining greater knowledge of economic concepts and theory during this course, you will be able to contribute in an informed manner to economic decision-making discussions, policy development and implementation.
Applied Economic Modeling for the Veterinary Sciences is one of the online medical courses that is part of MSc Epidemiology Postgraduate Online; the online MSc program in Epidemiology offered by Utrecht University, University Medical Center Utrecht, MSc Epidemiology and Elevate Health.
