Master's in Health Economics (MHS)

The Master of Health Science (MHS) in Health Economics will provide students with a solid understanding on how incentives affect the behavior of individuals; patients, insurers, and providers. Students will be equipped to take a systemic approach to promote an efficient and equitable allocation of resources. Students will use applied health cases from low- and middle-income countries to experience the value of economic tools in solving pressing health problems around the globe.

Students enrolled in this program from both departments will take a common core of courses, and will also have an opportunity to specialize, based on their interests and experience, through elective options.
