International Online Health Economics
These courses in Health Economics represent an exciting new venture – the
first of its kind in the world.
They are an international (largely on-line) distance learning program in

researchers. The courses do not

a highly respected educator and has previously directed distance learning
courses in health economics in the Nordic countries and the UK (both for
