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 health economics for (primarily non-economist) health care professionals and researchers.   The courses do not require any time in Australia; they can be done wholly at a distance.

With ever increasing demands on health care resources, there has in recent years been a growing awareness of the role of health economics in informing policy in the health care sector.

Throughout the world, health authorities, hospitals, government departments and other bodies, charged with the responsibility of the financing, provision and evaluation of health services, have increasingly turned to health economics to assist in their decision making.

The Director of the Course is Professor Gavin Mooney.   Gavin has been working in health economics for 30 years and, with over 200 publications and 15 books to his name, he has an international reputation as a health economist.   He is also a highly respected educator and has previously directed distance learning courses in health economics in the Nordic countries and the UK (both for non-economists) and an international course based in Tromso in Norway for economists.
