Health economists apply economic principles to the health care system in order to determine how resources can be best used to improve the health of populations. The Graduate Certificate in Health Economics introduces students to the basic foundations of micro and macro-economic principles, and to a range of theories and methodologies used in health economics. It is the only graduate certificate in Australia to offer courses in both mainstream economic theory and practice and health economics, and has a strong focus on the development of practical skills to support the application of health economics in the real-world. Students undertake a total of four courses; two in economics, one in health economics and one from a wide variety of electives offered by the School of Public Health, allowing them to tailor their studies to their areas of interest. Taught by researchers with international reputations and real world experience in the field of health economics, the certificate is ideal for those who wish to develop a career in health policy, planning and management. A flexible and modern teaching structure provides options for completing the certificate online. Graduates can progress to further study with the Graduate Diploma in Health Economics or Master of Health Economics and Policy.
